Interestingly enough, if you search for "markup" in WCAG 2.1, only three SC
have that phrase. Two of them are new SC:

- 1.3.6 Identify Purpose (AAA)
- 1.4.12 Text Spacing (AA) (which also mentions "text style properties",
eg CSS)

The only WCAG 2.0 SC that mentions "markup" is:

- 4.1.1 Parsing (A)

4.1.1 is about as close to non-technology-agnostic as it comes because it
mentions "start and end tags", "attributes", and "IDs".

So Patrick is technically correct, but Joe is pretty correct too if you
consider 75 of the 78 SC in WCAG 2.1 are technology agnostic (96%).
