Re: Element ID is not unique (style tags within head of html)

I'd argue a usability and accessibility issue. You can link to IDs as a functioning anchor - having more than one ID breaks this. I think the problem stems from this.

Oh, and I only just noticed that you said it fails 1.3.1, not 4.1.1? In
that case, no idea what that particular automated tool is
thinking/doing. Certainly doesn't look like a 1.3.1 issue to me at all.
False (by quite a long shot) positive?
