Summary of Issue: Test does not require check whether user-entered data is re-displayed
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The description of this technique (the same point applies to technique G83) mentions "re-display the form (including any previously entered data)".
The test does not check whether previously entered data is actually re-displayed.

Proposed Change:
Add a third line in the test:

Procedure
(1) Fill out a form, deliberately enter user input that falls outside the required format or values

(2) Check that a text description is provided that identifies the field in error and provides some information about the nature of the invalid entry and how to fix it.

(3) Check that other data previously entered by the user is re-displayed.

Expected Results

    #2 and #3 are true
