Re: Build for the bugs?

I always recommend adhering to the spec, because as support increases, your widget will only work better as time goes on, whereas if
you try hacking a solution for a particular browser/AT combination, it will likely only break as proper support is refined.

Subject: [WebAIM] Build for the bugs?

I recently joined this list and have noticed a number of discussions surrounding bugs in AT and how to code solutions around these
It reminds me of the browser wars.

My question is... Should we be coding for the browser / AT or for the spec?
