content, for instance HTML pages and Star/OpenOffice documents.

is that each paragraph (generally) be a separate 'accessible', where
possible. In the case of embedded images, there are to possibilities:
* images that text flows around
* images that are anchored to a particular offset in the text.
In the first case, I think the images should be siblings of the text
objects, and the EMBEDDING AtkRelations would handle the relationship
between them. In the second case (which is, I believe, the GtkTextView
case), we discussed using AtkHypertext + AtkHyperlink instead, within an
attribute on the hyperlink object indicating that it is 'inline'. I
need to look again at AtkHyperlink to see if we already have support for
determining whether a link's object is 'inline' or not. (Hyperlink is
the only interface we have for associating one object with a particular
