Hi Mark

 

I don't think it is the same... in F89 there is a closed anchor with *no*
alt *or* link text... I think Adam's example is the opposite... there is alt
text *and* text inside the anchor... this is chatty, but not a failure of
WCAG.

 

 

Cheers,

Hi Adam, 

I believe that's covered under F89:
<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/failures.html#F89>

Hi 
Is there a failure for content which has duplicate link info, like the
failure examples provided here: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/H2.html?
( 
<a href="products.html">
 <img src="products.gif" alt="Products page"/>
 Products page
</a>

) 
Or is it just not best practice?
