2 Ensure that descriptions of dynamic content are updated when the dynamic          3   0   0        0   0
 content changes.(ie in HTML ensure that the source of a frame is a document.)
3 For scripts that present important information or functionality, provide an       3   0   0   1    3   4
alternative, equivalent presentation or mechanism. (NOSCRIPT)
4 For pages that use style sheets or presentation markup, ensure that the           3   0   0        0   0
