Apart from this technique, only two other items seem unique to this success 
criterion (see Loretta's mail):
* Using the link element and navigation tools.
* Failure due to using scripting events instead of anchors.

Techniques, 16 February), 4.1.2 has been reworded and is no longer 
restricted to components that respond to user input, so it now seems to 
cover the two items above.

probably be rendered through a presentation that conveys relationships, in 
which case they are covered by the reworded 1.3.1 ("Information and 
relationships conveyed through presentation can be programmatically 

It seems that my case against deleting 2.4.1 is overcome by events because 
my concerns against deleting it have been addressed elsewhere. (Unless I
