Re: Generic Links

Sure, and fixing SC 1.3.1 issues for table / headings markup would
resolve SC 2.4.4 issues as well.
But there are cases when the Click here / More link is styled /
positioned differently ... outside the sentence or paragraph, and the
contextual text is not determinable programmatically. The heading,
say, "Press releases' or 'In the news' may not be enough to convey the
purpose of links to individual news items under it.
These links are not ambiguous to all in general and need to be
flagged as SC 2.4.4 violations.
