Invisible means that you can conform to the guideline without changing your
default presentation.   Any access accommodations are invisible (like alt
text).

Visible means that to conform you may have to change your default
presentation.

Does this help?

And yes - that designation will not be in final copy. Just used now for
formulating them.

Subject: Notation of Criteria as invisible and visible


I am working through the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines and I am unsure why criteria
have been given a notation of invisible and visible (refer to Editorial Note
in section on Conformance). Can someone advise me as to the issue to which
this relates?

I assume that this notation is not intended to remain in WCAG 2.0, but is
just for discussion - please advise?

Thanks

Brian hardy
