Business description

Criterion : 13.7

Test : 13.7.1

Test description :

On each Web page, does each downloading functionality for an electronic document pass one of the conditions below (except in special cases)?

Level : Bronze

Technical description

Scope : page

Decision level : semidecidable



Set1 : All the <a> tags with an href attribute (a[href])

Set2: All the elements from Set1 with an href attribute that does not contain a fragment (presence of the hash sign (#))

Set3 : All the elements from Set2 that have a proper extension (no parameters, a path after the domain that contains a "." character)

Set4 : All the <form> tags (form)



For each element of Set3, we check whether the content of the href attribute of the link ends with an extension that belongs to the office document extension list

For each element returning true in Test1, raise a Message1


IF Test1 returns false, we check whether the size of Set2 is equals to size of Set3. In other words, we verify that all the links of the page have a well-defined extension.

If Test2 returns false (some links have no extension on the page), raise a Message2.


If Test2 returns true (all the links have a well-defined extension), we check whether Set4 is empty (the page contains forms that may lead to a downloadable document).

If Test3 returns false (some form are found on the page), raise a Message3.

Message1: Office Document Detected
Message2: Check manually links without extension
Message3: Check downloadable document from form




In all other cases


We assume that a targetted document (pointed by the href attribute of the link) can be characterized by its extension.

Here is the content of the office document extension list (feel free to help us improving it or to criticise it) :
