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)

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">).
