I am rather new to this list and am curious if anytime recently there has been discussion about adding tabstrip and tab elements to the html5 spec? The concept of a tabstrip is a rather commonly used UI component on the web (web-applications, content management systems, facetted searches) and it would be particularly useful for accessibility if we could communicate the semantics of the tabstrip through markup.
My definition for a tabstrip is a collection of items (tabs) of which one is "active" or "selected", each tab usually will perform an action when activated.
Possible markup for tabs with no function (informational only).
For active elements like links anchor or buttons could be used within each tab.
