No. I am trying to achieve the following:
1. 2.4,4 (Text Link, "not" 2.4.9)
2. 3.2.4 (Consistent Identification)
3. 2.4.5 (Multiple Ways)
4. 3.2.1 (On Focus)
5. 3.2.2 (On Input)
6. None of the five rules listed above can interfer or cause a failure in another rule (e.g, a pas on 2.4.4 causes a failure on Multiple Ways, is a failure). (e.g. A pass on 2.4.4 does not interfere with 3.2.4, 2.4.5, 3.2.1,  or 3.2.2 is a pass)
2.4.4 Question: I am working on these in sections and currently working on 2.4.4 to revise the text links accordingly based on the e-mail I sent. If the website I link to complies with 2.4.4, by providing the details of the attachment, can I link to their site without giving the details of the attachment? 
2.4.4 Question;  If the text-links (C7) are hidden on my site, but the destination url provides the required information on their server, is that sufficient?Do I need to repeat the information on my site that is on the destiniation url?
3.2.4 Question: My document does not contain frames, forms, scripts, or icon images. It contains primary images, a style sheet, and the information is set is similar to 
W3C IMAGE, "Contents" "Intro" "Previous", with the exception there are no links as as a footer. What are my options for 3.2.4?
2.4.5 (Will my the recommended work on 2.4.4 cause a failure in Multiple Ways)
3.2.1 Not sure where to begin. Please read note below.
3.2.2 Not sure where to begin. Please read note below.
Note: A previous consultant suggested On Focus and On Input requires scripting. I do not have scripts on my site. Therefore, the consultant suggested these two requirements were not applicable. Is this true?

I believe you are trying for AAA.  As I understand it, the various levels are set approximately as follows:

A  - The marketing department wouldn't naturally comply, but wouldn't notice if a sub-contractor created pages to this level;

AA - The marketing department would probably try and change some things to reduce it to A, but can probably be convinced not to - branding compromised, small print easy to find/read, facts clearly stated, etc.

AAA - Most marketing departments would have severe objections.

So, by chosing AAA, you more or less have to accept that marketing oriented managers will object.  Marketing department perceptions and accessibility very often conflict.

Reply-To: set to list.
