W2       4.1.1                 




To what extent is this implicit in the definition of "programmatically
determined" and all of the criteria requiring that aspects of the content
must be able to be "programmatically determined"?


Does programmatic determination impose a stronger requirement than sc 4.1.1
in so far as it demands the use of representations supported by user agents?


It is unclear how one could satisfy 1.3 if the user agents can't
unambiguously parse the content in the first place. "                       

Proposed Change 


Proposed Resolution - from Team A 


Comment asks if there is overlap.  The answer is often but not necessarily
always.   For example, two browsers might parse a document differently using
repair techniques.  A particular item might be programmatically determinable
but be located in two different places on the page in the two renderings.
It doesn't affect the meaning, - but the inability to parse can break AT
where it doesn't break other browsers.
