Michael,

Thanks for the proposal.

I've edited it for consistency:
If any of the following occur, ask the user if there is an existing text 
transcript file or if a text equivalent has been provided on the current page:
* the "href" attribute of an A or AREA element is a sound or multimedia
file.
* the type attribute of an OBJECT or EMBED element is a sound or multimedia 
file and no text equivalent is provided (either within the content of the 
element, a link to content on the same page, or a nearby link off of the page).
* the "src" attribute of an EMBED element is a sound file, multimedia file, 
or programmatic object and there is no "type" attribute.
* the "data" attribute of an OBJECT element is a sound file, multimedia 
file, or programmatic object and there is no "type" attribute.
* an APPLET element does not have "alt" attribute or internal alternative 
content.
