Document containing a link to a MIDI file; when the link is activated, an external player is opened. Change of user agent when a link is activated johannes.koch@fit.fraunhofer.de en Copyright BenToWeb 2004-2007 2005-08-29 validated

This test case is intended to fail because the change of user agent was not expected.

The user initiated the change of context, but did not expect it to be connected to the user's action.

This test case maps to failure F22: Failure of SC 3.2.5 due to opening windows that are not requested by the user. (Example 2 for that failure says: "A user clicks on a link, and a new window appears. The original link has no associated text saying that it will open a new window.")

Note that success criterion 3.2.2, which allows certain changes of context of instructions are provided first, is not relevant here, because it applies to form controls instead of links.
