Hi all,

The writing is on the wall.

Accessibility Task Force ACTION: Janina to carry to PF the request to
clarify that ARIA Described-by text can include markup, and that any
such markup needs to be exposed to a11y apis
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/track/actions/129

Silvia to Jonas in "Re: ISSUE-30 longdesc - Chairs Solicit Alternate
Proposals or Counter-Proposals" thread:
"I suggest your change proposal should also include that browsers need
to expose the markup of the html snippet(s) that aria-describedby
points to to accessibility APIs."

Best Regards,
Laura
