I am somewhat confused by your message. My response and
the email it generated led to the concensus that we need
a new CSS property for spelling out text a letter at a time
when rendering to speech. I have asked the chair of the CSS&FP
working group for this to be added to the WD-acssn draft
which encompasses ideas for presentation control of aural

This property could be applied to the ACRONYM element or
to other elements such as SPAN. I will modify the HTML 4.0
draft to clarify the suggested rendering of acronym.
