[Bug 14419] when canvas isn't supported, or for blind users, the canvas element's content should be displayed, so excluding input types like text and select is discriminatory

Comment via Rich Schwerdtfeger:

This text exists in the canvas element specification: 
"When authors use the 
 element, they must also provide content that, when presented to the user,
conveys essentially the same function or purpose as the bitmap canvas. This
content may be placed as content of the 
 element. The contents of the 
 element, if any, are the element's 
fallback content."
