Release of siteSifter 2.10 (p15)

This week’s release focus mainly on the development of a new baseline. At the same time we are taking the opportunity to deal with a few bugs.

One of the most important of these showed up in the WCAG 2.0 baseline, specifically in the 3.1.1 success criteria: when a document used the XHTML doctype, but the text/html content–type, and only specified language by way of the xml:lang attribute, screen readers had no hook from which to pick up the information.

xml:lang only is permissible under the XHTML specification, but not when using XHTML per AppendiC “HTML Compatibility Guidelines”.

This, and other minor bugs, have been fixed in p15.
