Techniques for Checkpoint 8.1 Provide a mechanism for highlighting and
identifying (through a standard interface where available) the current
viewport, selection, and focus.

stylesheet to select attributes for selection and focus, such as color,
border width and color, font size, etc.

whether to follow a focused link.

and the content property to insert text before a link such as "visited" or
