| I would add an attribute to the SPAN tag (and only for SPAN,
| because it is really a character-level semantics) :
| 
| <span altread=3D"Here is a menu...">[menu_choix_1 <span
| altread=3D"or">|</span> menu_choice_2 <span altread=3D"or">|</span>
| help]</span>

I don't know enough about this subject to be making detailed
suggestions, but when you start needing to add attributes to SPAN in
order to differentiate one piece of content from another then it's
time to start using XML, which is designed to allow you to extend the
language without changing the HTML specification.  See
