Working Group Resolution (LC-2883):
Thank you for the comment. The technique H93 that you are referencing is
from an early draft of WCAG 2.0 dating back to 2005. This technique was
removed in 2006 and the H93 code was repurposed in the 2010 techniques
update.  We are sorry if this caused confusion, we do try to avoid re-using
technique codes but since the first use was prior to WCAG 2.0 reaching
Recommendation status this was not a concern in 2010 when the current
version of H93 was added. We are also looking into modifying the page
template for techniques to include a link to the most current version of
each technique. Until this link is established, to ensure that you are
reviewing the latest version of the techniques please visit the current
techniques document at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/.
