Description

Name: lm3724			Date: 01/07/2000


What is the feature and what problem is it solving?:
The new feature is to provide full accessibility to HTML components. Swing 
components such as JTextComponent can contain HTML components such as tables.  
Currently, these HTML components are not accessible to assistive technologies.  
To the extent that the HTML support in Swing becomes popular, we need to 
have strong accessible support for HTML compoents.

How will it work?:
The protected inner classes for Swing components that implement accessiblity 
will be modified to return accessibility information about HTML components 
contained by the Swing components.

What are the benefits over other solutions?:
The javax.accessibility package is the standard way for assistive technologies 
to obtain information about swing components.
