>Subject: Call for Review: WAI-ARIA User Agent Implementation Guide -
>Last Call Working Draft
>Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,
>The W3C WAI Protocols and Formats Working Group (PFWG) invites you
>to review that Last Call Working Draft of:
> WAI-ARIA 1.0 User Agent Implementation Guide
> http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-implementation/
>It is part of the Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA)
>suite described in:
> WAI-ARIA Overview
> http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria.php
>This User Agent Implementation Guide is for developers of web
>browsers and other user agents. It describes how user agents should
>support WAI-ARIA; specifically, how to expose WAI-ARIA features to
>platform accessibility APIs (application programming interfaces).
>For more information, see the Abstract at
>Document stages: This Guide was previously published as a Last Call
>Working Draft, and then changes were made based on WAI-ARIA testing.
>It was then published as a Working Draft for review of those
>changes. Now that testing is nearly complete and the PFWG thinks the
>content is stable, we are publishing it as a Last Call Working
>Draft. We expect to advance this Guide to Candidate Recommendation
>soon. "Last Call", "Candidate Recommendation", and other document
>stages are explained in:
> How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process
