Hi Maciej,

So to press a point, in your opinion JAWs + IE _and_ Firefox + WindowEyes
supporting an attribute would count, where-as JAWS + IE and JAWS + Firefox
would not.

Further, even if neither Firefox nor IE, standing alone, did anything more
than expose the attribute to the AAPI, as long as 2 independent screen
readers delivered the proscribed functionality, it would be deemed

Have I summarized that correctly?
