Re: is this switch valid?


not sure I'm understanding your suggestion, however in the example  
audio and text are provided, the switch being systemlanguage to  
decide the user language.

again, another switch could be used to provide alternate content, as  
I understand you to suggest.
however, why not present both, without a switch?

Maybe this was intended in 1.1 to encourage that authors provide  
content, because there is a high probability, that foreignObject  
content is
not displayed at all, because there is no format required to be  
In the given case it might be useful to provide text or other visual  
as an alternative to the audible content in the MP3 file ;o)

But anyway it is simple to undermine this intent in 1.1 just writing
<switch><foreignObject ...>...</foreignObject></switch>.
