IMHO no, the UI in his case is pretty poor for users of graphical UAs.

I don't really think this is a good way to present the information. Something
like:

   <aside>
     <p><cite>The Lady of Shallot</cite> has inspired other art, for example
the following painting:</p>
     <figure>
       <img src="shalott.jpeg" alt="A painting of a young women with long hair
sitting in a wooden boat. She is wearing a flowing white dress. A large piece
of intricately patterned fabric is draped over the side. In her right hand she
holds the chain mooring the boat. Her expression is mournful. She stares at a
crucifix lying in front of her, besides which are three candles, one lit.">
     </figure>
     <p><a href="http://bit.ly/5HJvVZ">More information about this
painting...</a></p>
   </aside>

...would IMHO be significantly more comprehensible for the purpose you are
describing, for all users.
