I don't want to get anyone's hopes up but there's an interesting  
comment from Lawrence Meckan on the WaSP blog post:

He's getting good results from up-to-date screen readers with advance  
verbosity settings and this little caveat about the markup:

"I’ve also expanded the abbr pattern to include a span inside it,  
essentially duplicating the semantic structure, in order to do a fix  
for IE6 not styling abbrevations."

If there's a chance that adding an extra span inside the abbr element  
somehow helps screen readers, then that should probably be included  
in the test cases:

Like I said, we shouldn't get our hopes but it's certainly worth
