Hi Laura,

That example wouldn’t be covered by either of the proposed “metadata on hover” wordings because it is not triggered by hover. (It was triggered by deleting email, onclick on or keypress.) 
It also isn’t “informational content” because it has links, and isn’t meta-data… so it really isn’t covered here!

Also, if something is already covered by an SC, I thought we would try and avoid overlap? It is clearly covered by the Resize content one.

Also, I’m still not clear how the ‘fully visible’ definition would cover the mouse cursor aspect? 
As there is no author controlled way to affect the mouse cursor (except hiding it!), we really have to go with “not conveying information” that way.

    Hi Alastair,
    That's where the "not clipped or truncated" part of the "fully
    visible" definition may be able to help if we go the route.
    Kindest Regards,
