  • Milestone changed from 1.0-beta to 1.5

This is interesting and certainly assistive standards should be supported. Considering this is a very new draft standard we should put this away until there is a demand from capable assistive web clients.

A similar patch for WordPress went in in changeset 10945 during the 24 hour marathon.

I also asked rmccue on IRC to look over the patch, and he believes I've covered everything. Requesting commit. :-)

Replying to sambauers:

The capable web clients are out there now. WAI-ARIA is being supported by Firefox 3, IE 8, Opera and the new Safari 4 betas. Screen readers such as NVDA and Orca are supporting it, including these landmarks, now.

I request to reconsider for 1.0.
