Why not use a mark-up that has both the original REC text and the proposed replacement text; for example, <span class="errata"><span class="original">The REC text fragment</span><span class="replacement">The replacement text fixing the error.</span></span>. Then styling for normal access would make the "replacement" class be "display:none" and would put a yellow background (as a warning) on the "original" text. Then using either ":hover" or an explicit toggle on the "errata" <span>, the "replacement" text could be displayed to anyone that wanted to see it. This convention would, I believe, give better accessible access because instead of small fragments of insertions and deletions, the entire section that needed to be re-written would be present in two forms, either of which could be presented to the
  
viewer.

I believe, Steve, that this is exactly what <ins> and <del> are for. :-)
