Name From:

A widget that may contain navigable descendants or owned children.

Authors should ensure that a composite widget exists as a single navigation stop within the larger navigation system of the web page. Once the composite widget has focus, authors should provide a separate navigation mechanism for users to navigate to elements that are descendants or owned children of the composite element.

Note: composite is an abstract role used for the ontology. Authors are instructed not to use this role in content.
