Actually having re-read it I would prefer  "Content is operable in all display orientations supported by the user agent, except where a particular display orientation is essential for use of the content." but I realise I should have suggested this a long time ago.  Sorry I could not attend the meeting due to work schedule.

Many thanks Josh and once again apologies for the muddle.

Best wishes

Sorry a bit of a query… should it be 'Programmatic Notification'?

" Content is not locked to a specific display orientation, and functionality of the content is operable in all display orientations, except where display orientation is essential for use of the content."

"Content is operable in all display orientations supported by the user agent, except where display orientation is essential".
