Dear WAI Interest Group,

W3C WAI announces the publication of Role Attribute 1.0 as a W3C Proposed Recommendation on 13 December, at:
     http://www.w3.org/TR/role-attribute/

Role Attribute allows authors to annotate markup languages with machine-extractable semantic information about the purpose of an element. Role Attribute is a critical requirement for WAI-ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications), which is introduced at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria.php>

Proposed Recommendation (PR) is the last stage before final publication as a Web Standard "W3C Recommendation". The W3C Process stages are described in:
