>  In the case of the focus rectangle wouldn’t it be the color of the rectangle and the background for each one that was changed by the author?  Or are you saying just the rectangle color and not the background color that were set by the author.

I’m saying that: In the case of the web stack, the default focus state is defined by outline, so if the author leaves the outline alone, that meets the exception.

If you use “outline: 0;”, or change the outline (color, thickness etc), you have changed it therefore a visual indicator of the focus state needs to be available, and if it is graphic meet the contrast requirement.

I think that’s basically the web-dev perspective, thinking in terms of CSS…
