Comment (including rationale for proposed change):
Are we OK with the support robust technology section?
To me , if I were reading a guideline to support robust technology I would expect: Support more then one operating system. Or support at least on free operating system, and free useragents were possible. Use technologies that support more then one independent assistive technology . That type of thing...
When they say something can be parsed - they do not say by who - is it some proprietary format that only works on one environment?
To make this requirement easier to understand, we have reworded SC 4.1.1 to clarify that it must be possible to parse content without the need for user agent repair. The revised SC reads as follows:
4.1.1 Content implemented using markup languages has elements with complete start and end tags, except as allowed by their specifications, and are nested according to their specifications. (Level A)
Note: Start and end tags that are missing a critical character in their formation, such as a closing angle bracket or a mismatched attribute value quote are not complete.
