  Checkpoint 1.1 states: Provide text alternatives for ... inserted bullets ...
  
  While it is easy to provide alt-text for an inserted bullet in the old
  fashioned way, e.g.
  
  <IMG SRC="blueball.gif" ALT="Item: "> Pencil <BR> 
  <IMG SRC="blueball.gif" ALT="* "> Telephone <BR> 
  <IMG SRC="blueball.gif" ALT=" "> Calendar <BR> 
  
  how can we add a text alternative for a bullet image inserted via a style
  sheet? E.g.
  
  <style>
  UL LI { list-style-image: url(blueball.gif) }
  </style>
  
  Any thoughts?
