Description

In John Gunderson's grid here:
http://test.cita.uiuc.edu/aria/grid/grid1.php

He uses aria-labelledby for the cells. The spec was changed to
say used aria-describedby.

Regardless, this still brings up an issue:
When calculating the name.
* Firefox adds the header pointed by aria-labelledby to the cell text
* IE 8 uses only the aria-labelledby. It isn't added to the text, it replaces it.

aria-labelledby is supposed to be an override, so we should be doing it the IE way.

Is this similar to bug 433895 where we add the original accessible name for a control (provided by a label's control attribute) when taking it into aria-labelledby? There, we don't override completely as well.

I'm sure it is fixed by one of the name calculation reorganization bugs. Closing the bug.
