why is role="navigation" wrong for a section
2013-12-19 11:23:26 GMT
Dear all, Whilst checking <input type="button" /> by direct input, the following validation error was produced "Element input with attribute type whose value is button must have non-empty attribute value" - with only the closing bracket highlighted in red. The validation error should read "Element input with attribute type whose value is button must have non-empty value attribute" ("value" and "attribute" swapped at end) prompting the user to change the code to <input type="button" value="whatever" />. Hope this helps Very best regards Alistair NOTE: Whenever possible, give the address of the document you were checking.
This error message is occurring in our pages because the link url contains a ? to separate parameters.
The ? is necessary to send the parameters. I think links should be excluded from this test.

From everything I've read, the syntax of the object element is correct. Is the message from the Validator correct? Thanks for any response, ... Peter E.
