Laura,

Is it accurate for me to say..that a web page has successfully passed WCAG
2.1 if the following is true.

   1. Pull the web page up (in Firefox w default text settings) as a
   baseline
   2. Pull up the web page again (in Chrome w Stylish extension and add
   this style by Laura Carlson’s style.
   https://userstyles.org/styles/154735/wcag-2-1-text-spacing-test
   3. Compare the two pages...and make sure there is no loss of content or
   functionality on the page that has been Stylished.


Is that a valid way to test for compliance to 1.4.12 Text Spacing?

Thanks,
