Thanks Bruce

Now I see the problem 
- those are not meant to be success criteria.  They are provisions under
4.2.2.   
- but we used the word "criteria" for these provisions - and that may create
a problem.   

Perhaps we should have called them 'clauses'   so we don't have criteria
that are subsets of criteria. 

Those provisions only apply (in 4.2) when you are using technologies that
are NOT in the baseline.  

When using technologies that ARE in the baseline - you use 2.1 and 2.3

So those two subprovisions of 4.2.2 can't be separate provisions/success
criteria  -- but we do need to rename them so it is clearer. 

Thanks 
 
Gregg

4.2.2.1:  When content violates either the general flash threshold or the
red flash threshold, users are warned in a way that they can avoid it.

4.2.2.2:  If the user can enter the content using the keyboard, then the
user can exit the content using the keyboard.

These two sc have little to do with each other, save the conditional for
applying them.  It seems disingenuous to combine two rather disparate
checkpoints into one.

I suggest that current 4.2.3 be renumbered to 4.2.4.

4.2.2.1 becomes 4.2.2.  4.2.2.2 becomes 4.2.3.

4.2.2:  When content violates either the general flash threshold or the red
flash threshold, users are warned in a way that they can avoid it, even if
the content uses a technology that is not in the chosen baseline.

4.2.3:  If the user can enter the content using the keyboard, then the user
can exit the content using the keyboard, even if the content uses a
technology that is not in the chosen baseline.
