The project I am currently involved with at work has several paging widgets i.e. for image slideshows, search results, etc. that contain summary information such as “Showing 1/8”.
So how can this information be marked up in HTML in an accessible manner?
Well, I cannot remember where I got the inspiration for this from - if I remember I will post an update - but here is the HTML that I decided to use:
<span class="summary"> Showing 1<abbr title="out of a total of">/</abbr>8 </span>
Pretty nifty eh?
Please let me know what you think.
