Description

12 years ago
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

This has been tested by the screen reader vendors in a special build created
for them.
