By giving the container element the role "img", all the child elements of the
container element will be considered presentationl. This is descirbed in ARIA
1.0:

http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/complete#childrenArePresentational
http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/complete#img

As a result, the the labeling elements for the role="img" element has to be
pointed to via aria-labelledby, like Ian has done.

As a result of Ian fixing the spelling of aria-labelledby, VoiceOver on Mac OS
X 10.5 works ase Ian describes. Thus I see no error in Ian's description.

Which implementations of ARIA 1.0 works differently and what is the difference?
