Hi Katie, David, and Gregg,

For Proposal H on the Wiki [1], I replaced,

"If technologies being used can achieve it, text styles of the page
can be overridden without losing essential content or functionality as
follows:"

with

"If the technology being used has the ability to override text styles,
text styles of the page can be overridden without losing essential
content or functionality as follows:"

Thanks.

Kindest Regards,
Laura
