Hi Ramon,

I am still not sure. Applications are included in step 3a and processes in 
step 3d .
The only thing that the random sample shows will be the first page of such 
an application or process, it will already have been covered in 3a or 3d. so 
no further action is required.

Perhaps it would be better if the "problem with different states" be 
discussed within the sections 3a and 3d, not as part of 3e random sample?

I confess that I have never tested a game - could be quite fascinating

Regards
Richard

A page that produces different states can be a complete web application
that would contain ALL the "pages" of the application within a single
URI. For such applications you cannot test every screen nor every
functionality, in the same manner that you cannot test every page in a
website. Other example could be a game, where you cannot test every
level, or pages that dynamically show information based on user input
(for example, IA assitants that show information related to the user's
query, like the IKEA one, if I remember well).

Regards,
Ramón.
