Re: Focus-appearance structure

Hi Detlev, Wilco,

Wilco – mostly because it was draft by different people at different times!

I’ve aligned those (commit<>) as Detlev suggested, although it isn’t showing in the preview yet.

Why does the second bullet have "all the following" on it, and the word "and" at the end of all but the last sub-item, but the first bullet does not?

It may not be completely clear that "one or both of the following is true:" appies to the entire section (1) and (2) and not the elements within those sections. Maybe everyone else thinks it is clear, then forget this. One way to make it more unambiguous would be to add AND at the end of the first two of the three bullets in each group - that then clearly ties them together.

Hi Folks,

From the survey results, there were a couple of comments were around the structure of focus-appearance and how some requirements were actually in the exception.

Taking Gregg’s proposal for the (now removed) AAA version, I used that to re-structure the AA version:<>

None of the requirement bullets have changed at all, it is just starting it with a “one or both of the following are true” format.

The question is: Does this improve the readability of the SC?

Kind regards,



Detlev Fischer
