Somebody pointed out on a Dutch accessibility mailing list that 
example 2 in technique SCR20
fails F42 <http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20081211/F42>.

The example code is:

<img onclick="nextPage();" onkeypress="nextPage();" tabindex="0" 
alt="Go to next page">

The F42 test procedure is:

1. Check whether there are JavaScript event handlers on an element 
that emulates a link.
2. Check whether the programmatically determined role of the element is link.

The above image emulates a link to the next page in the sequence; 
since it is an image element, its programmatically determined role is 
not "link". (See also failure examples 2 and 3 in F42, which use an 
img element.)

Should we remove the example?
