That is what I meant

AND that takes care of the technology problem too.    If you are using a technology that cannot support it — the SC does not apply to you

now at level AAA you can have an identical one that does not have the IF clause in front of it.  That would mean that you cannot use a technology that does not allow it.  And technology restrictive SC are usually at the AAA level  — level AAA being for people who want to go the extra mile. 

Now all you need to do is test the SC on lots of pages and prove to ourselves that this one is doable with all different content types.    I think I can be but don’t know unless we actually try to apply it in lots of places.
