Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I don't understand. There's pages of information on this, first from
the semantic perspective (starting from "What an img element represents depends
on the src attribute and the alt attribute." and ending with "The contents of
img elements, if any, are ignored for the purposes of rendering." about two
dozen paragraphs later), and then in the rendering section under "Images" and
"Attributes for embedded content and images". Could you elaborate on exactly
how all this text is deficient?
