    WAI validation failure on 2 points.

    Hi,

    My validation test for WAI accessibility fails with the following error:

    # Rule: 13.1.2 - All Anchor elements are required not to use the same link text to refer to different resources.

    * Failure - Anchor Element at Line: 96, Column: 7
    * Failure - Anchor Element at Line: 112, Column: 9

    what does this mean or, more importantly, how do I fix it?

    my links are like this on those lines
    Code:
      <li><a href="/cgi-bin/nearby_business/28/1/Introduction/20080402_Introduction">Introduction</a></li>
    and
    Code:
    <li><a href="/cgi-bin/confab/1/28">Contact Us</a></li>

    Why do some people say "I don't know for sure"? If they don't know for sure then, they don't know!

    maybe this explain better:

    you can't avoid names like 'Introduction' and 'Contact Us' but you can add aditional title attribute to your links.

    best regards
