    Attachment: derby-5181-01-aa-accessibleReleaseNoteGeneration.diff

Attaching derby-5181-01-aa-accessibleReleaseNoteGeneration.diff. This addresses the accessibility
problems with the release note generation tools. Also attaching the RELEASE-NOTES.html generated
after making these changes.

This patch makes the following changes:

1) Adds a lang="en" attribute to the <html> tag of RELEASE-NOTES.html

2) Replaces <blockquote> elements with <div> elements.

3) Makes the ReleaseNoteReader reject detailed notes which contain blockquotes.

Touches the following files:

M      java/build/org/apache/derbyBuild/ReleaseNotesGenerator.java
M      java/build/org/apache/derbyBuild/GeneratorBase.java
M      java/build/org/apache/derbyBuild/ReleaseNoteReader.java

> The top-level RELEASE-NOTES.html file uses the <blockquote> tag to indent the text.
This looks nice and improves readability, but it violates the WCAG accessibility guideline
3.7, which says, 
> "Mark up quotations. Do not use quotation markup for formatting effects such as indentation."
> You can use a CSS stylesheet for formatting, however.
