Is this on the Mac, or on an iPhone/iPad?

I'll file a bug with Apple within the next couple of days, as soon as I can find the time.

  My colleague brought this up today, and I thought it was interesting. It appears that Voiceover on iOS devices doesn't support the use of innerHTML, where the changed content is not actually detected.

  I tried his test page at
  Using an iPhone with the latest OS, and it appears to be true. Tapping the third innerHTML link increments the value, but not for Voiceover.

  Has anyone else encountered this before?
