            Bug ID: 23207
           Summary: Alt text should identify image class when relevant
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CR HTML5 spec
          Assignee: robin@w3.org
          Reporter: janina@rednote.net

Section 4.8.1.1.3 explicitly uses a logo in its examples, but the alt text
provided does not include the term "logo." This is useful information that
should be indicated by alt text. As a general rule, a clearly identifiable
image class should be indicated in alt text along with a terse indication of
the image's purpose on the page.
