Some comments on UAAG 10.5 techniques:

- Techniques for providing a link title could be display it on the status
line along with the link URL or put it in the Properties dialog you can
access from the context menu (via right mouse click or Shift + F10). I
assume the link title means the title attribute for the link element and
not the title element of the document being linked to.
- A technique for indicating an internal link could be different speech
plus font or color characteristics. Same for recently traversed links. Is a
recently traversed link the same as a visited link?
- For type, size, and natural language - is this for the link itself or for
the document the link references? If for the document referenced, it seems
like the second exclusion says you don't have to retrieve a linked resource
to get information, so is this really a requirement or not? Natural
language could be indicated by a lang attribute, but what indicates the
type and size of linked resources? UAAG 2.3 and 2.10 provide some
techniques related to natural language preferences and what to do for
unsupported natural language attributes.
