WCAG-ISSUE-34 (H86:): Suggested Update to H86: Providing text alternatives for ASCII art, emoticons, and leetspeak

On product: 

This technique is quite vague and seems to cover multiple solutions. The test only requires test before or after the ASCII graphic, but in the examples you see much more then that. Including a solution with the abbr element that doesn’t actually pass the test. This technique might need to be rethought. Perhaps it can be a general technique?
