        Good plan. The apology was for my diversion on to defacto standards,
rather than the original Flash, Firefox, MSAA discussion.

        One of the remaining problems that rests with Firefox and Flash, is
the inability to tab focus onto a Flash entity from within Firefox. I know
Erin Leventhal of Mozilla and Andrew Kirkpatrick from Adobe, are pushing for
this to be remedied after the launch of Firefox 3.0.

It was I who originally questioned Alistair's use of the term, and I who
should be apologizing if this thread is off-topic, not Léonie or David, who
were just trying to help.

 From the list description at:

http://www.freelists.org/list/access-uk

I assumed that a clarification of the technical terminology used when
discussing accessible software would be on-topic, particularly if that
terminology is subtly interfering (in my view) with the resolution of
"issues or problems surrounding ... access technology".

But I am sorry for the list noise if that conclusion was wrong. Perhaps we
can get back to a more practical discussion of the bugs in question?
