David,

Then such verdict/policy should apply to other testcases trying to style
the alternate text as well.

When I reviewed inlines-009.htm and inlines-010.htm, I said
[
there is no normative rule on how replaced element should
be displayed.

{
How a replaced element's content is rendered is not defined by this
specification. Rendered content may also be alternate text for an
element (e.g., the value of the XHTML "alt" attribute)
}
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#defs
(...)
]

Now in RC2, those inlines-009.htm and inlines-010.htm have been updated
(to use the Ahem font) but the same issue is there (for the - rightmost
- 4th box using <img src="404" alt="ÉÉÉ">).
