*1. Change Stylesheet to “styles” (this is what Stylish uses as a term for
stylesheets) *

*2. reordered*

*3. delete "all pages" second bullet on 1.7.2*

*1.7.3 Disable Author Styles: *

If the user agent supports a mechanism for author styling
<http://w3c.github.io/UAAG/UAAG20/#def-style-profile> rendered content, the
user can disable the author styles on the current page. (Level A)

@@ this seems the lowest level of control. Turn off the author stylesheet
and use the default browser styles

Reference for 1.7.3 <http://w3c.github.io/UAAG/UAAG20-Reference/#sc_173>

*1.7.1 Support User Style Modification Mechanism: *

If the user agent supports a mechanism for author styles
<http://w3c.github.io/UAAG/UAAG20/#def-style-profile>, the user agent also
provides a mechanism for a user to override author styling on specified
elements. (Level A)

@@then the user can look at modifying the existing user styles. Added “on
specified elements” seemed that overriding could be viewed as simply
turning off the styles. Wanted it to be more. Styish provide mechanism for
changing specific elements on specific pages.

Reference for 1.7.1 <http://w3c.github.io/UAAG/UAAG20-Reference/#sc_171>

*1.7.2 Apply User Styles: *

If a mechanism for user styles is supported, then the user can enable or
disable user styles for: (Level A)

·        All pages on specified websites, or

·        @@All pages @@this should be removed. Or marked AAA. Cannot find
any implementation

Reference for 1.7.2 <http://w3c.github.io/UAAG/UAAG20-Reference/#sc_172>

*1.7.4 Save Copies of Styling Profile: *

The user can save copies of the user styles referenced by the current page.
This allows the user to edit and load the copies on other devices.
(Level AA)


discussion: though 1.7 is all about stylesheets, we define the
functionality for styling text in 1.4. we use the word 'stylesheet' 64
times (18 in success criteria - 2 are in 1.4, the remainder are in IER). We
use the word "style" 131 times (it includes the 64 mentioned above). So we
have some word replacing to do.

We could remove the definition of "style sheet", it will no longer be used.
We have covered what we need within the definition of "Style Properties".
Or, we could make "style sheet" part of the definition of "style
