Wendy proposes:
<blockquote>
* Example 8: a traffic Web camera.
A Web site allows end-users to select from a variety of Web
cameras positioned throughout a major city. After a camera is selected,
the image updates every 2 minutes. A short text alternative identifies
the Web camera as, "TraffiCam." The site also provides a table of travel
times for each of the routes covered by the Web cameras. The table is
also updated every 2 minutes.
 
 
</blockquote>
 
This will work as long as there is only one TraffiCam link on the page.
But I read the description as implying that there are several cameras on
the page, and the user can pick the one she wants.  If the label just
says TraffiCam, the user won't know which one she's dealing with.  Can
we fix it?
