Hmm... this thread started, on 2 Feb, with James
Craig saying "This is the tail end of a thread from the PFWG."
So I thought perhaps we had an opportunity for collaboration
between the groups with a latency of less than a week or two.

If I don't hear anything from the PF WG by the time
Sam send the agenda for this tomorrow's teleconference,
I suppose we should postpone discussion to next week; that
would be a shame; I thought we were so close.

ISSUE-31 (missing-alt): What to do when a reasonable text equivalent is
unknown/unavailable?

      * ACTION-98 on Gregory Rosmaita: Discuss missing-alt with the WAI
        CG and report back - due 2009-02-18 - pending review

I changed the due date from 19 Feb to 18 Feb in order to make
clear that things to be discussed on Thursday should be available
to public-html on Weds when the agenda goes out.
