Hello Everyone,

I have drafted a Change Proposal for HTML ISSUE-31.

Summary:
The current guidance for conformance checkers for Section 4.8.2.1 the
img element is unclear and does not implement WAI CG's advice on the
validation of short text alternatives. This change proposal replaces
the current guidance with clear guidance that lists all required short
text alternative options that exist to be considered valid. It enables
automatic validators to programmatically detect the presence or
absence of text alternatives.

Full proposal is at:
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/ChangeProposals/ImgElement20090126

Ideas for improvement are most welcome.

Thanks.

Best regards,
Laura
