All,

the question came up if multiple instances of aria-describedby and aria-labelledby are perfectly allowed for a DOM node, and what UA should do here (concatenate, only take the first ref etc.).

e.g.

<span aria-labelledby ="ID1" aria-labelledby ="ID2" />
<span aria-describedby="ID3" aria-describedby="ID4" />

Are the specs here unambiguous?

Best Regards
Stefan
