Buttons and links has  different functionality so I think  it  is  violation  of  the  WCAG rule.

hi all …


quick question about styling links as buttons or styling buttons to look like links.


Is it a failure of SC 3.2.4 to have a link styled like a button with the role semantics of link on one page and have the same functionality performed by a  button styled to look like a link with the role semantics of button on another page?
