Hi Laura,

On the face of it, I think any use of default focus indicator would constitute a fail of the wide interpretation, unless you had a very narrow user-agent support list.

That's quite a lot sites (like w3.org) who assume the default is ok.

I'd like to dig into the rationale / connect  behind that decision before considering if the same though.

Hi John, Alastair, and all,

I wonder how many existing implementations would be in violation of
the wide interpretation versus the narrow interpretation.

The WG decision for 1.4.13 Content on Hover exception was because:

"As many existing implementations would be in violation of this
success criteria, the decision was made to allow this exception.
Removing this exception will be considered in future guidelines." [1]

Kindest Regards,
