  Subject: Proposal: Change context type label "text" to "visual text"

  Hello,

  In the 23 October draft [1], the "text" content label includes
  three checkpoints: 3.3, 4.1, and 4.2, all of which refer to
  requirements related to visual rendering of text:

    3.3: Blinking and animated text. I assume here that this only
         applies to visual rendering.
    4.1, 4.2: Text size and font family.

  Therefore, consistent with our use of the word "text" to
  mean "characters (before rendering)", I propose changing the
  content label to "visual text".

   - Ian
