    Oggetto: RE: Javascript alternatives not necessary? 
    
    
    Loretta points out that our guidelines should stand the
    test of time.
    
    OK.
    
    While we focus upon things like JavaScript, SVG and Flash,
    who says that some smart person won't come up with a new
    technology?  Each time we have a new technology come up we
    are in the same position ... it won't work on all
    platforms and in all assistive technology. Therefore, we
    must have a fallback position.
    
    That fallback position must be an equivalent text
    alternative.

    But Michael was just using Flash as an example for a more
    general question. 
    We'd like these guidelines to stand for a long time, and
    technology will continue to change.
    
    Supposing that Flash did have support on Mac and Linux.
    Would that change your answer? Are there any conditions
    that wouldn't require a text alternative?
