ISSUE-363: Handling speak-as for uncommon languages

Handling speak-as for uncommon languages

Raised by:
Richard Ishida
Opened on:
3.9 Speech Synthesis: the speak-as descriptor

What do we expect will happen if the UA doesn't know how to pronounce a letter of the alphabet or a number in the language of the text? Eg. what would it do for text i might mark up in some fairly uncommon language such as Abkhazian, or Aragonese, or Aymara?

Related notes:

It would do the same thing as it did if you had <span lang=Abkhazian>1234</span>. Don't think this is really an issue. :)
