Correction: please substitute "implemented" for "marked in <version2>
below, and pretend that I spelled "content" correctly too.
 
Another possibility would be:
<version2>
Non-text conteent is marked such that it can be ignored by assistive
technology if the non-text content is not functional, is not used to
convey information,
and does not create a specific sensory experience.
</version2>
 
So it should read:
 
<version3>
Non-text content is implemented such that it can be ignored by assistive
technology if the non-text content is not functional, is not used to
convey information, and does not create a specific sensory experience.
</version3>

	Wendy proposes the following for GL 1.1 L1 SC4:
	 
	<proposed>
	4. Non-text content that does not convey information,
functionality,
	or create a specific sensory experience is implemented such that
it can
	be ignored by assistive technology. [I] {Editorial: replaced
"provide
	information" with "convey information" and added "create a
specific" to
	"sensory experience" for consistency. Issue 1487 - replaced
"marked"
	with "implemented.}
	 
	 
	</proposed>
	 
	The following is editorial only to make the sentence
gramatically parallel and make it follow the order of SC 1-3 above
(functional, convey information, create sensory experience).
	<editorial>
	4. Non-text content that is not functional, is not used to
convey information, 
	and does not create a specific sensory experience is implemented
such that it can
	be ignored by assistive technology. [I] 
	</editorial>
	 
	Another possibility would be:
	 
	<version2>
	Non-text conteent is marked such that it can be ignored by
assistive technology if the non-text content is not functional, is not
used to convey information, and does not create a specific sensory
experience.
	</version2>
