An example from
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/tables.html#h-11.1
: http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/images/mergedcells.gif.

(I only consider the image, not the text surrounding it). If the image
is used without proper explanations in the text, how could you give a
short alternative *and* a full description of it's content ?
