Summary of Issue: ALT text for icon(Example 4)
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Example 4 has the following example code:

<a href="foo.htm">

<img src="house.gif" alt="icon"/ >

Home page

</a>



This should be a failure example as the icon is a decorative image.

Proposed Change:
<a href="foo.htm">

<img src="house.gif" alt=""/ >

Home page

</a>
