Hi Stefan,

ARIA can be used in any markup, and not just HTML.  There are plans in 
the works for its use in  SVG, for example.  So, a separate page set of 
techniques for just ARIA makes sense.

Nonetheless, you raise a good point since ARIA is being used in HTML 
now.  Perhaps there needs to be a wiki page for the HTML+ARIA combo.

Three wiki pages?  :-).
