Make (sure) 9.4 is internally consistent

Raised by:
Mary Ellen Zurko
Opened on:

"Web Sites that require their users to be redirected from an unsecure web page to a secure web page MUST do it as a single step rather than multi-step (redirect to an unsecure page and then redirect again to a secure page). This specification recommends that the web page MUST use direct links to a secure page rather than using redirects."

I'm confused. Isn't the first line in conflict with the second? Doesn't it say you can do something that the second line says you cannot?

got it. misread the text; the ()'s are about what not to do instead of what to do.
