The following is a proposal for HTML techniques. I will implement the proposal in a draft unless there is objection from the group. There will still be room for debate of the proposal in the context of the next draft.

HTML techniques currently describe mechanisms for providing alternative content for the OBJECT and EMBED elements but fail to do so for the APPLET element. There should be a technique to use the "alt" attribute or embedded content of APPLET to provide text alternatives. The embedded content approach should be preferred since it would work in the complete absence of support for the APPLET element.
