Re: PDF Tagging - layout tables.

But Duff, there is no PDF/UA-2. Yet.

So I'll correct my original statement to read:
There is no Aria anything in the current PDF/UA-1 standard.

Don't want people confused about the differences between the main PDF standard and the PDF/UA, PDF/A, PDF/X, etc. micro-standards (or subsets) that create targeted standards for different types of PDFs used for different purposes.

This is not true. PDF 2.0 (ISO 32000-2) includes support for ARIA attributes on structure elements.
