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


<li><a href="/cgi-bin/nearby_business/28/1/Introduction/20080402_Introduction">Introduction</a></li>

and


<li><a href="/cgi-bin/confab/1/28">Contact Us</a></li>

maybe this explain better:

http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/#tech-meaningful-links

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

best regards

Thanks oesxyl; I'll follow up on that.
