WCAG Samurai question
So the final version of the WCAG Samurai errata to WCAG1.0 was published yesterday, and it all seems eminently sensible to me.
The only correction I don’t understand at the moment is this one, under Guideline 10:
Do not add non-link, printable characters (surrounded by spaces or not) between adjacent links unless the semantics of the document naturally would include such characters.
As I understand it, that means don’t do this:
<a href="a.html">A</a> | <a href="b.html">B</a>
Does anyone know what the reasoning is behind this decision? (I’m sure it makes sense, I’d just like to understand why.)
