But simon's point of using getters() and setters() rather than direct
field
mainipulation is still valid.
It's bad java practice to have fields accessible outside the class scope
...
i was just working with the example that was given.

Hmm.. actually, for this rule, the content is always plain text by
definition, never nested data so I guess a simple field is ok in this
case, just as Lance had it.
