Hi John and all,

I think it could.

But the big question is: Is it an author's responsibility to solve a
user agent issue?

In the Hover SC discussions, I was told that it isn't an author's
responsibility. Rather, it is a Silver issue.

With Marla Runyan's techniques [2], we had author title attribute
fixes for 1.4.13 too. But that didn't stop the User Agent exception
from going into 1.4.13. [1]

Let's be consistent with how we handle the User Agent problem in  SC
1.4.13 and 1.4.11. If it is a Silver issue in one SC, it should be
Silver issue in both.

Kindest Regards,
