Description
In several situations it is highly desirable for assistive technologies to parse and present the raw stream behind a component on the screen (e.g. HTML, bitmap images, MathML).  In order for the assistive technology to get at this information in a standard way, we need to introduce a new interface to the javax.accessibility package.  

This interface is already a part of the GNOME accessibility API, and will probably be added soon to the UNO (StarOffice) and Netscape accessibility APIs.

EVALUATION

Committing to Tiger.  This is only an interface definition.  Implementing
it on Swing is desirable for Tiger but a lower priority (P4).  The corresponding
bug ID for implementing the interface is 4702236.
