H81: Identifying the purpose of a link in a nested list using link text
combined with the parent list item under which the list is nested
Thank you for taking note of my input and adding a user agent note to H81.
(Ref: your email dated Oct 3, 2008)
So in reality H81 is not a sufficient technique today.

If the parent item is marked up as a heading, the context of the link can be
queried without losing focus. In other words apply H80 to it.
So please consider modifying the technique to:
H81: Identifying the purpose of a link in a nested list with reference to
the parent list item marked up as a header.
An h3 or h4 tag should be added to the parent items in the examples.
