For work on audio formatting and presenting structured information in a manner
appropriate for audio look at


Keeping the audio and visual stylesheets orthogonal is not *silly* as you
This is an important design goal, and I definitely do not intend doing a
speech stylesheet mechanism that keys off the visual.

This said, <strong> is clearly independent of both visual and aural

Given that the visual stylesheet specifies to the browser how it should
realize <strong> it's logical  to allow the speech stylesheet to do the same.
