Best wishes

Abi

Hi Abi,

On the original topic:
> One issue I would like to address is the use of icons fonts.

This did come up with the Low Vision task force, there was some discussion about including it in the SC that became 'Text spacing', but it didn't quite fit.

There is a technique drafted that would fit under Info & Relationships, which seems to be a better fit:

We just haven't had anyone who has time to finish it off unfortunately.

Cheers,
