Not my example, but yours is the one which is confusing. I did not nest 
labels and links. I just said WHY I DID NOT use labels in my example. 
Labels and links were nested at your example at:
http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/docs/Resource%20booking.htm remember ;-)?

That is right, but not the thing I want (remember that I wanted to add a 
lot of "resources" and I don't want to have a double text for each). 
That's why I preferred using the title attribute.

Please, take notice that:

1.- http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test57.html says that 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/testfiles/57-3.html passes the test, 
so I assume that as long a a title attribute is provided, labels, though 
recommended, are not required. That's why I added the [not(@title)] part 
in my XQuery expressions.

2.- Your example at 
http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/servlet/ChangeGuideline?lang=eng fails 
with http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test197.html (lots of "(view 
details)" links pointing to different targets ;-) ???!!!!

3,. You should validate 
http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/servlet/ChangeGuideline?lang=eng with 
itself (it does not right now) ;-)

4.- I will test your validator. :-)

Thanks.
