I'd like to see the wording expanded to include things like the title
attribute and summary attribute for tables, which are not, in fact, rendered
under "normal" situations.  Titles can be rendered when they are pointed to,
and summaries are not rendered at all, but I sure would want to be able to
search on them!

How would you find information stored in a title if you can't search on it?
Just point to everything on the page, and hope it pops up some where?

jon suggested:

quote
Checkpoint 7.5 Allow the user to search for rendered text content, including
text equivalents rendered in place of or simultaneously with the primary
content.
unquote

hmm...  short, concise, and to the point...  i like it...

and, as ian suggested, if the verbiage contained in my proposed note isn't
already in the techniques document, it should be added to the techniques and
not the UAGL itself...
