Description:
As was agreed at the face to face at TPAC in Mandalieu, create a document defining how html elements map to platform accessibility APIs to ensure that, on the same platform, all browsers expose html content to the native accessiblity API the same way. This ensures that AT can access html content in a consistent way across browsers.

The following bugs relate to this issue.
