test file

WebKit seems to be performing spell checking on content when AX client requests attributed text content, even when the content is not within an editable text area.

Steps To Reproduce:
1. Open the attached HTML page in Safari
2. Turn on VoiceOver, then interact into the web content (VO-Shift-down arrow), then jump to next paragraph (VO-Shift-PageDown or Vo-Shift-Fn-down arrow) to land on the second paragraph

VO starts reading the second paragraph content as:
Where view. Around a to take to mouth. Often, misspelled, a, only, misspelled, their, and prudently, sacred.
