Wouldn't this basically create a level 2 criteria (or level 1 if you make it
level 1) that would bar any technologies that do not have style sheets?

Subject: [#827] Success criterion for separate content from presentation


Guideline 1.3 [1] speaks to the separation of content from presentation. The
techniques working group would like to create HTML techniques for this
(e.g.,
"use CSS instead of HTML styling tags". But our structure is that techniques
must relate to specific success criteria. While the existing success
criteria
under this guideline provide further detail, they do not themselves cover
the
general case. 

Therefore I propose adding a success criterion "Presentation is implemented
separately from semantic structure." I suspect this should be a level 2 SC
but
possibly it should be level 1.
