Image Reorderer code question

Hey Daphne,

The default markup for the Image Reorderer is not table-based. Mike  
Elledge's comments about the way to phrase the test plan make a lot of  
sense to me.

I know that Everett spent a bit of time playing around with the Image  
Reorderer using a screen reader and found the lack of hard stops at  
the beginning and end of the list rather disorienting. He had some  
other ideas for how we might be able to provide additional cues to  
help orient the user. I think that feedback is probably archived on  
the mailing list.

Hope this helps,
