I have yet to see this implemented. Possibly FF5 and/or Safari in Lion
might work. I have implemented the aria-hidden attribute as you
suggested. I'm wondering if it makes sense to set role="presentation" on
the other elements when a dialog is opened. I have not seen this actually
do anything in the past, but I'm wondering if it makes sense today to
prepare for the future?

Is aria-hidden implemented in FF4 and Jaws12? I'm having some trouble
making it hide

I assume It should work with this?
document.getElementById("ARIA_content").setAttribute("aria-hidden","false");
and
document.getElementById("ARIA_content").setAttribute("aria-hidden","true");

I can see the value on the div changing, but the contents of the div is
not
hiding?
