Sec. 2.2



We propose to add to this section on \"input\" the requirement to provide
an adequate input method for the user. Especially for complex scripts like
Chinese or Japanese, this is a crucial requirement.

Working Group Resolution:
The Best Practices do not set requirements on user agents, only on
content; we already give recommendations on input mode for the content 
(see AVOID_FREE_TEXT and DEFAULT_INPUT_MODE]. Any further consideration
would better fit in the techniques related to these best practices, on
which we welcome contributions:
