Yesterday I suggested to the forum using technique H30 using the alt tag with 
<alt="PDF format">,
This suggesion was rejected because there was no image
1) If there is the pdf download logo can I use that with alt="PDF format"?
2) There was a differenent opinion on Succession Criteria 2.4.4 with technique G189 from a forum. The difference of opinion was file size and type is not required if there is only one file type.
3) Technique C7 (hide information) there was no feedback yet.
4) Can Succesion Criteria 2.4.4 pass with at least one Technique?At the moment, I am using G189+C7.
Does W3 or the Working Group agree with statement #1, #2, and/or #4.

G189 is a technique. There are no 'rules' associated with it.

However, the thought that it is only useful when links to different formats of the same document appear is clearly rubbish. That is just one example of when it could be useful.

There are no required techniques. Only success criteria are required.

This is not HTML.

I don't understand this question.
