Hi Sam,

I do not anticipate changing the Include longdesc in HTML5 change
proposal in response to the Chairs ISSUE-204 decision.

FYI: I spoke with Judy today. She and the accessibility task force may
be developing further documentation for ISSUE-30 to help ensure that
longdesc is included in HTML5.

Best Regards,
Laura
