Re: Emacspeak, Slashdot and W3?



The w3 table browsing commands in emacspeak work reliably on
the slashdot site.
True, they abuse html tables to produce multicolumn layout;
but at least their tables appear to be programmitically
generated and are hence consistent.

Note that there is a new command (experimental and as yet
incomplete)
in emacspeak 9.0 that allows you to "focus " on the current
table cell --
the result is to display the text contents of the current
cell in a separate buffer.
