Good question. There is one on this list. But I rarely see activity from
any of the major screen reader development companies on ANY of the
accessibility lists. But that's an entirely different issue.

This is certainly an interesting case. And from my testing it could
certainly disadvantage JAWS users accessing more advanced CSS enabled
sites unless it is either fixed or screen reader users are educated about
these new feature behaviors. Any guesses as to which one would be most

I'll work on putting together some test cases and see if other CSS
practices invoke this behavior.
