Hi all,


The abbr attribute [1] which has been obseleted in HTML5 has just been
implemented (patch) in Firefox [2].
I don't know what this means for its status (if anthing) as accessibility
support implementation is not generally specified in HTML5 or taken into
account when talking about implementation of HTML5 features

with regards
