Again, and let me repeat for the last time. 

What guidance does the group want to provide to authors in these cases. 

In my world, the context that authors work within has a real impact on
the decisions they make. Standards are important. Software is imperfect.
What happens in the interim is a real concern. 

Please tell me about your world. 
 

Cheers,
Bob

    Oggetto: RE: Validity
    
    The specific reference here is related to use of <embed> with Flash.
    Recently, there has been activity around creating code that embeds
Flash
    content in a page that follows standards. From a validity
standpoint, it
    works great. However, there is a negative consequence here, this
valid
    markup renders the Flash content inaccessible using that screen
reader.
    After a few chats with the AT maker, it is clear that a simple fix
is
    not forthcoming.  
   
Roberto:
that's all folks!
Here in Italy we said: "o Mangi la minestra o salti dalla finestra" (you
must eat the soup otherwise go through the window).
So you confirm that is an user agent issue, not a web content issue.
I hope the Vendor will find a solution before 2006.
