Accessibility requirements "Stanca Act"

Hi all,

I am developer, I'm very glad to use mojo, I like it since it has a great and extensible framework and also since Joe put a great effort for accessibility...

Anyway I'm struggling with a website for a governmental institution in Italy and I must use the "Strict" document type.

I've found that - at least for the front end which would be good at the moment - every is fine except a couple of things related to javascript:

1. if I use the RssFeed module, it loads NeatHtml but the tag is invalid, the error is:

there is no attribute "language": <script type='text/javascript' language='javascript' src='/ClientScript/NeatHtml.js?guid=33ed0439-de92-4203-99c7-c53ee71099f6'>

how can I manage the issue? 

2. the noscript tag is needed for every javascript

In this forum I've found that for NeatHtml it is not possible to have a noscript tag, is it maybe possible for other javascript to have it? And if not, is it maybe possible to remove the javascript at all (of course, limiting the functionalities or limiting the use of its modules, ie I won't use the rss feed or other modules, only HtmlModule is really needed....)

Thanks,

Re: Accessibility requirements "Stanca Act"

A noscript element is only intended to provide alternate content when javascript is used for content interaction. NeatHtml is not used for content interaction it is used to protect against cross site scripting, ie it is intended to block javascript that is inside untrusted content such as feeds from external sites. Its a security feature not something the user sees.

If you don't want the feed manager installed you can delete the folder /FeedManager and /Setup/applications/feed-manager before installing and before upgrading mojoPortal.
