Re: Objection to Adapting Text

Hi Laura,

The paragraph spacing one should be ok (I was thinking of the line/border spacing one), although in the context of this SC I’m not sure what value it is aiming for?

If line spacing (within paragraphs) is increased to 1.5(em), and paragraphs spacing is “at least 1.5 times larger than line spacing”, does that mean 2.25em of space between paragraphs? (1.5 * 1.5 = 2.25)

If so, let’s just say that, or possibly round down to 2em (2 lines of space?) between paragraphs for simplicity.

Also, do we have (or need) a definition of paragraph? 

Paragraph is an element used in HTML/PDF/ePub, so an element that should be a paragraph but is not would fail 1.3.1, so perhaps that covers it well enough?

    COGA has an SC that specs paragraph spacing 1.5 times larger than line spacing:

    It likely could be scoped there.
