Hi everyone,

After the long discussion on target spacing today, I tried to collate the options into one place and add a couple of diagrams:

Personally, I'm leaning towards option 5 as the simplest which measures the size+spacing of the target, which would be:

For each target, the distance of the target's edge farthest from each adjacent target is at least 24 CSS pixels, except when:

  *   [3 bullets unchanged]
  *   Nested: The target is enclosed within another target and has a minimum height and width of 24 CSS pixels.

If you'd like to add something (options, positives/negatives, diagrams etc) please let me know and I'll add you as an editor of the doc. It is open for comments.

Kind regards,
