Description

14 years ago
Since we cannot define the wairole: prefix as having a meaning in HTML, at the
moment we have to use XHTML.

The idea is that the xhtml2:role attribute value points to an rdf entry
So if you say xhtml22:role="wairole:checkbox" it gets expanded to something like
http://www.w3.org/2005/01/wai-rdf/GUIRoleTaxonomy#checkbox

Right now we don't look at that rdf -- that's slated for a later date. Right now
we just hardcode the meaning of the roles in that GUIRoleTaxonomy. 

So we are going to need a slight modification for text/html where wairole:
prefix means use the hardcoded WAI roles.
