+1 (much better) - for consistency we need I believe a "due to"

Suggestions for examples:


Example 1:

Information about the author or authors are just placed in headers or footers.

Example 2:

Billing addresses and/or contact informations are just placed in headers or footers.

Example 3:

Information about categories of single articles are just placed in headers or footers and not for example in the table of contents.

I don't think we need the word "important"

Failure: Information in the header or footer is not presented at least once in the main body of the document or is not programmatically determinable.

 is  "important"   a testable term.     too subjective to be a failure?   (fails to meet the "always a failure" test for failures?)

Hi all,

what I'm thinking about is adding a failure technique: important information is just placed in headers or footers. What is an "important" information?

Just two examples:

# information about the author is just placed in footer.

# contact informations are just placed in headers or footers and not elsewhere in the document

By adding a failure technique we I believe could adress different user preferences but make sure that important informations which are placed just in headers or footers will fail the SC.

Cheers

Kerstin

So this issue is very much a user preference and thus flexibility should be afforded to the user to choose which way they want information provided.
