           Summary: refer to pronunciations for TTS PLS with link rel value
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec proposals
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

A link element rel value is needed to support text-to-speech synthesis via
Pronunciation Lexicon Specification (PLS) for customized or unexpected

PLS 1.0 defines a way to provide pronunciations that might not already be in
TTS software. While it is designed to work with XML and SSML, there seems no
inherent reason why an HTML5 document can't reference a file of pronunciations.

I propose section 6.12.3 add a value for the link element for the rel atribute
to refer to the *.pls file. I propose the value be "pronunciation".

A past practice of using abbr or acronym tags to support pronunciations caused
confusions with some browsers, and should be abandoned or deprecated.

I plan to add this to the RelExtensions wiki unless there's an objection.

Thank you.
