Hi all

I'm interested in your understanding of F63 http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/F63

This failure deals with the context needed to understand the purpose of a link.  It states that the text in question needs to be in the same 'sentence, paragraph, list item, or table cell as the link".  I'm seeing a lot of people putting it in a <div> element rather than the above items.  Would you consider that to be a failure?

Personally I'd prefer to see all link text make sense either in or out of context, but that's a AAA criterion.
