JS: There is not support in mainstream browsers?
15:07:53 [chaals]
JF: There is in Safari and Firefox, but AT support isn't that good either...
15:08:24 [chaals]
MS: We came up with a broader, more general statement that we hope accommodates for current problems and points to solutions that we hope will work in time.
15:08:38 [chaals]

CMN: It was discussed to a certain extent in the bug...
15:12:06 [chaals]
JB: My understanding is implementation support issues are known, but not well-documented in ways that will help work going forward.
15:12:24 [chaals]
… most problems I know of are specifically with regard to browser support.
15:12:49 [chaals]
