Just a short question:

How is e.g. "lang=en" mapped into platform accessibility API's? I suppose it isn't.
Screen readers must extract it on all platforms using the DOM, right?

Stefan

Challenge accepted. Please give me a day to create a test file, after which

current collection of Browsers/AT combos.
