Call for Review: Updated WAI-ARIA Specification

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants

The Protocols and Formats Working Group invites you to comment on the following updated document published 6 August 2008:

The Working Group particularly seeks feedback on host language embedding, that is, how ARIA is implemented in HTML, XHTML, SVG, and other host languages. This is defined in section 6 "Implementation in Host Languages" and section 7 "Quality Assurance". Please send any comments
* by 3 September 2008 to
