Hi all,
I have been following this discussion for some time now, and it appears to me that a standardization of the WAI language would do us all a huge favour. OK, we are not going to eliminate the differences between English, American English et al, but where attribute/tag/element are concerned, then I would advocate a suitable naming convention for this. That way, no one can get confused. Good idea, or bad???

For those who want to know: a tag in the UK can mean many things, including the name of a graffiti artist that is sprayed on a wall, a label on a shirt or similar, and also a nickname; and that is just to name a few!

Kindest regards

Simon
