Re: Please review: slight modifcation to proposal

From: Wendy A Chisholm <wendy@w3.org>

Message-Id: <>
To: w3c-wai-gl@w3.org
Slight modification:

<blockquote> 3.1 Use markup rather than raster-based images to convey 
information. [Priority 2] This checkpoint is strongly tied to checkpoint 11.1.
Note: Until style and graphic markup languages are more common, minimize 
the use of text in images. For example, use HTML text styled with CSS. 
Choose common fonts (such as Arial and Times) that can be rendered using 
CSS. You may use text in images for logos and limited accent elements where 
specialized fonts and text treatments are required and cannot be achieved 
with CSS.

As I stated in my previous message, if there is no new information on this 
topic please do not respond. We will discuss this at tomorrow's teleconference.
