FYI...........this may already be on the issues list, but if not.............

Test 80 - object must have a text equivalent.

http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test80.html


The test process says "The text equivalent may be text, a link to a text equivalent or an image with valid Alt text.". However the code example shown of the passing image (80-3.html Will pass the test. (Contains image alternate content.)) does not in fact contain any "valid alt text" for the image.


Test Process
Procedure
Check each object element and view the elements that are contained by the object. 
Expected Results
Each object is expected to contain a text equivalent for the object. 
Fail Instructions
Add a text equivalent for the object. 
The text equivalent may be text, a link to a text equivalent or an image with valid Alt text. 
Pass Instructions
Any accessibility check may be performed after this test.


80-3.html Will pass the test. (Contains image alternate content.)
