If this is the entire list then we are very close to being able to finish the work on moving the content of the "alt techniques" WD [1] to HTML 5.

I have split this bug list into those bugs that are a) Open, b) FIXED in HTML 5.1 and c) FIXED in HTML 5.0.

Steve: Can you check the "Fixed in HTML 5.1" category to ensure that I have these items correct?  For this list I believe we need to decide which of these items need to be moved to HTML 5.0.

Open

a)      18450<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18450> Consider adding a screen capture example

b)      Bug 9216<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9216> - Provide a CAPTCHA example that is in accord with WCAG 2 or Defer to "HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives"

c)      Bug 22161<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22161> - paragraph contains inaccuracies

d)     Bug 22375<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22375> - Images of text where there is also an image

e)      Bug 22438<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22438> - Alt text for an image to a home page of a web site
