Normally we clean out \r, \n and \t characters in the accessible names of objects, because those are only indication of the formatting of the markup. However, in the case of <pre> and other text formatted using white-space: pre the line break info is important. Oftentimes tabular information is rendered inaccessible because we remove linebreak info. For example: http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/al/hourly.html To reproduce: 1. Go to above URL 2. Launch MSAA Inspect and position arrow of text 3. Notice that the accessible name is all on 1 line What should happen: Line breaks should be rendered in MSAA Inspect window
