Sean,

Does the proposal I made (reprinted below) get close to what you're
looking for? Or is it off the mark?

<proposed>
When a navigational sequence is conveyed through presentation,
components receive focus  in an order  that follows the relationships
and sequences conveyed through  the presentation. </proposed>

There's something not quite right, but I think it's  trying to go in the
direction you're suggesting.

I'd like the provision to capture two principles:
1) That the navigated order is *intensionally provided* by the author as
a natural presentation order of the content (they can use a default for
the content type if it is appropriate, but should do so in a mindful, as
opposed to accidental way)
2) That if the content is delivered in an alternative modality, that the
same order will be presented as that of the primary modality.

Now how we write that down I'm not sure, but I don't think we are there
yet.

Thanks, Loretta. I think the approach makes sense, but I think "some
order" will get us into trouble.

But maybe we can flip it around? How does this sound?


<proposed>

components receive focus  in an order  that follows the relationships
and sequences conveyed through  the presentation. </proposed>

Hmm. I wonder if this is already covered under 1.3.1? (The uber-SC...)

Sean raised a number of issues of interpretation with our current
wording of SC 2.4.6:

<current>When a Web page is navigated sequentially, components receive
focus in an order that follows relationships and sequences in the
content. </current>

I thought I'd see whether we could clarify things by borrowing some of
the language of SC 1.3.1:

<proposal>
When a Web page is navigated sequentially, components receive focus in
some order that follows relationships conveyed through presentation .
</proposal>


Is this any better?

Loretta
