This page shows examples of passing /failing the draft WCAG 2.2 SC Target Size (Minimum). The font size of paragraphs and lists is set to 14px.
line-height: 1.8 works out as 25.2px which means that each item will have an offset of more than 24 px vertically.
line-height: 1.2 works out as 16.8 px which means that links may have a vertical offset of less than 24 px to vertically adjacent link targets - but they are inline links and thus fall under the exception.
The first keynote was by Maire Dupont (See ). After that we had a refresher by Edgar Wiesenbach (see ,). After the break, Georgina Forel presented her Master Thesis on cryptograms (see ,). Last not least, Caspar Boone treated us to his metaphysics of aleatoric parsing (see )
line-height: 1.2 which works out as 16.8 px between list items which means that links in those items may have a vertical offset of less than 24 px to vertically adjacent link targets - but they are inline links (not the entire list item is linked) and thus fall under the exception.
line-height: 1.2 works out as 16.8 px which means that the inner items 2 and 3 will have a vertical offset of less than 24 px vertically (the outer items have no links above / below, so they would pass). Since the entire list item is a target, these links are not considered inline links and therefore fail the SC.
