Rules

“Rules” refer to success criteria in WCAG 2.0, checkpoints in WCAG 1.0 and similar requirements.

Primary Rules

The test case passes (line 9, column 121) the following success criterion: http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/Overview.html#consistent-behavior-no-extreme-changes-context.

The test case passes (line 9, column 206) the following success criterion: http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/Overview.html#consistent-behavior-no-extreme-changes-context.

Functional Outcome

The user initiated the change of context, and expected it to be connected to the user's action.

Technical Comment

This test case uses the same code as sc3.2.5_l3_027, but adds a warning.

(In Opera 9, the focus seems to get "stuck" on the third link.)

This test case does not map to a WCAG 2.0 technique or failure.

Secondary Rules

Secondary Rule (WCAG 2.0 - April 2006 Working Draft (Last Call))

The test case passes (line 9, column 121) the following success criterion: http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/guidelines.html#consistent-behavior-no-extreme-changes-context.

The test case passes (line 9, column 206) the following success criterion: http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/guidelines.html#consistent-behavior-no-extreme-changes-context.

Functional Outcome

The user initiated the change of context, and expected it to be connected to the user's action.

Technical Comment

This test case uses the same code as sc3.2.5_l3_027, but adds a warning.

(In Opera 9, the focus seems to get "stuck" on the third link.)

Online version: sc3.2.5_l3_054.

Secondary Rule (WCAG 2.0 - April 2006 Working Draft (Last Call))

The test case fails the following success criterion: http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/guidelines.html#navigation-mechanisms-focus.

Functional Outcome

The normal tabbing order and the reverse tabbing order are not the same, and this can make it difficult to build a consistent mental model of the content.

Secondary Rule (WCAG 2.0 - June 2005 Working Draft)

The test case passes the following success criterion: http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20050630/#consistent-behavior-no-extreme-changes-context.

Functional Outcome

The user initiated the change of context.

Technical Comment

The user moved the focus to another link, which initiated a change of focus.
