Level : Bronze

Technical description

Scope : page

Decision level : semidecidable

Algorithm

Selection

Set1 (table tags identified as presentation table from html markers)

All the table tags with an "id" attribute or a "class" attribute or a "role" attribute that matches one of the values set by the user through the "PRESENTATION_TABLE_MARKER" parameter AND a "summary" attribute.

Set2 (table tags not identified as presentation table from html markers)

All the table tags that don't have an "id" attribute or a "class" attribute or a "role" attribute that matches one the values set by the use through the "PRESENTATION_TABLE_MARKER" parameter or the "DATA_TABLE_MARKER" parameter AND a "summary" attribute. That means select all the table tags of the page when these parameters are empty.

Process

Test1

For each element of Set1, we check whether the "summary" attribute is empty

For each element returning false in Test1, raise a MessageA.

Test2

For each element of Set2, we check whether the "summary" attribute is empty

For each element returning false in Test2, raise a MessageB.

For each element returning true in Test2, raise a MessageC.

MessageA: Not empty summary of presentation table
  • code : NotEmptySummaryForPresentationTable
  • status: Failed
  • parameter : summary attribute, snippet
  • present in source : yes
MessageB : Check Nature of table with not empty summary attribute
  • code : CheckNatureOfTableWithNotEmptySummaryAttribute
  • status: NMI
  • parameter : summary attribute, snippet
  • present in source : yes
MessageC : Check Nature of table with empty summary attribute
  • code : CheckNatureOfTableWithEmptySummaryAttribute
  • status: NMI
  • parameter : summary attribute, snippet
  • present in source : yes

Analysis

Failed :

Test1 returns true for at least one element (at least one table identified as presentation table has a not empty summary)

NA :

Set1 AND Set2 are empty (the page has no data table or only tables identified as data table)

NMI :

In all other cases
