Item Number: H49: Using semantic markup to mark emphasized or special text...
Part of Item: Description
Comment Type: TE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Very difficult to test for this.

Says to use Q element which fails under IE.

WCAG doc itself does not use Q element.

Should be techniques about misuse of semantic markup for presentation.

Proposed Change:
Describe clearly when this applies.

Do not recommend use of Q element.

Add techniques that discourage use of semantic markup for presentation (i.e. misuse of Hx, BLOCKQUOTE etc.)
