Stefan,
Sorry, please continue this thread on WAI-IG or privately rather than on the GL list. It is a worthwhile topic to discuss but I closed this thread yesterday as it became unproductive on this list and we don't want that to re-emerge.

John,

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?

Regards
Stefan

Challenge accepted. Please give me a day to create a test file, after which I will post it publicly along with whatever results I can determine with my current collection of Browsers/AT combos.
