I noticed that the styles applied for the instruction text at the top of the technique seem to set opacity to .5 making the contrast of the text less 4.5 and difficult to read.  Perhaps this is a global change needed or perhaps we don’t need to use the instruction class on this text?

Hi all,

I'll also add that one of the more important goals is to make the identified inputs Programmatically Determinable. This is achieved by applying the appropriate metadata value(s) defined by the @autocomplete attribute.

The "magic" that the @autocomplete attribute achieves is specifically because of this Programmatc determination - the browser does simple pattern matching against a list of values locally stored with the browser, and supplies the appropriate corresponding value when the input is programmatically tagged.

It should also be clearly noted that currently neither Edge nor IE support the functionality found in Chrome, Firefox  or Safari with regard to auto-filling the form inputs.

David,
Thanks for putting this together.  I think we should reference Section 7<https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#input-purposes> of the WCAG standard  which defines the purposes.  While it could be used for all autocomplete values in HTML it’s aimed at the ones in our list – so we might want to clarify that first line.

I would also restate “The objective of this technique is to make form fields easier to fill out and understand.” To something like “The objective of this technique is to make form fields easier to understand with an added benefit of making them easier to fill out” since the focus on the SC is on input purpose to help identify the fields.

There are also some typos.

  *   Familiar
  *   Explicitly
