Re: Displaying Content based on previous selection

If the dynamic content appears, in visual and content order, after the
radiobutton that is selected to display it, I would not call it a
3.2.2 problem.
If, however, the content appears in content order before the
radiobutton that triggered it I would call it under 1.3.2/2.4.3 (not
discoverable if it is injected above the user location)
If the action of selecting the radiobutton refreshes the page or moves
focus away from the radiobutton to elsewhere on the page, I would call
it under 3.2.2
I have examples of these scenarios with dropdowns (I can attach or
post them somewhere if people are interested).
I actually think only displaying content that is relevant to the
user's selection is good usability and reduces confusion and user
interaction for everyone as long as the focus is not ripped away and
the content is discoverable.
