>
>Dear WAI Interest Group,
>
>Role Attribute 1.0 is now a completed Web Standard. It was published
>as a W3C Recommendation on 28 March 2013, at:
> http://www.w3.org/TR/role-attribute/
>
>Role Attribute allows authors to annotate markup languages with
>machine-extractable semantic information about the purpose of an
>element. It is a critical requirement for WAI-ARIA (Accessible Rich
>Internet Applications), which is introduced at
><http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria.php>;. Role Attribute also has more
>general uses and can be integrated into any markup language.
>
>Status and Comments: As a finalized document, the Role Attribute is
>not likely to undergo further changes. The Protocols and Formats
>Working Group expects that any further enhancements to the Role
>Attribute would take place in a future version of WAI-ARIA, instead
>of in a future version of the Role Attribute specification. Any
>comments received will be considered as input for errata or other
>future work. To submit comments, please start from
><http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/comments/instructions>; and use the Comment
>Form for Role Attribute; or, you can send email to the
>publicly-archived list < <EMAIL REMOVED> >.
>
>Please let us know if you have any questions.
>Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid
>cross-postings where possible.
