B.2.2.1 Makes HTML a gating factor – needs to be more general.

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ATAG Part B
Raised by:
Reed Shaffner
Opened on:
2008-07-26
Description:
B.2.2.1 Check "A" Accessibility: An individual check is associated with each level "A" Web content accessibility benchmark.
 [RS1]This is written in such a way that the HTML authoring rules are the gating factor.  It seems this should be based on more general content guidelines for authoring accessibly, for which there would be a defined mapping to benchmarks.  That way we don’t pigeon hole to HTML or other benchmarks with requirements which may or may not change over time.
 [JR2]Not sure why you read this as HTML specific, that’s not the intention.
