The page on UAs is shaping up nicely.

<http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/UAs>

Ideally, it would be great to keep this page as up-to-date and  
informative as possible. I could imagine having tables that show  a  
feature grid that quickly indicates what features each UA supports.

For  the accessibility UAs, that could include things such as  
refreshable braille displays and support for @longdesc, @alt,  
@summary, @cope, @headers, @axis, @abbr, object fallback, canvas  
fallback, speech/aural CSS, etc. I think this information is  
particularly helpful because is that (at least my impression) some of  
the advances in support for W3C recommendations is fairly recent  
(like Fire Vox and Opera support for speech/aural CSS). So, in terms,  
of empirical research into the use of these features, its may be too  
soon to measure where the cowpaths are yet.

For wikis, blogs, content managment, authoring tools, mail clients  
and list serves the feature grid might  include support for non- 
presentational HTML (since I'm discovering that support seems pretty  
poor).

Again, you're all welcome to add to the page. Especially if I'm  
missing any key products. As Sader pointed out there's quite a few  
content management systems out there (its dizzying). So perhaps just  
the link to WRI if fine there.  It might be worth it for us to  
mention some exemplary cases of content management systems (not that  
i have any one, in particular, in mind).

Take care,
Rob
