I can't verify that as I don't have 10.5.2, only 10.4, and on 10.4 with (final
release) Safari 3.0.4 it still gets stuck in a loop on the first heading.

Discussing this bug with some VoiceOver users, there seems to be agreement that
you shouldn't need to stop interacting with HTML content: the Read All command
should start from wherever you are inside the HTML content, and read to the
end. The VoiceOver Help in 10.4 says: "If you are interacting with the text,
this command reads from the VoiceOver cursor to the end of the text". In other
words, Read All is also Read to End. And this apparently doesn't work as
expected even in latest OS X, since it only reads the block immediately
selected by the cursor. See the following threads for discussion:



By contrast, if you interact with the text area in TextEdit, and move focus to
a paragraph, then press Control-Option-A it reads the entire document, not just
the focused paragraph.

I'm reopening for that reason, but feel free to open this as a different bug if
you prefer, since the steps to reproduce would inevitably be somewhat
