Â [RS1]This is written in such a way that the HTML authoring rules are the gating factor.Â It seems this should be based on more general content guidelines for authoring accessibly, for which there would be a defined mapping to benchmarks.Â That way we donâ€™t pigeon hole to HTML or other benchmarks with requirements which may or may not change over time.
Â [JR2]Not sure why you read this as HTML specific, thatâ€™s not the intention.
