I am trying to clarify checkpoint 4.2 of the Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines which suggests using the <title> attribute to specify the
expansion of each abbreviation or acronym in a document where it
"first occurs."

Is titling only the first occurrence adequate? What if a user skips
past the first occurrence of an abbreviation?

Thank you.
