Hi Dona:

    I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that.
Hopefully someone else on this list does.

Wishing I could help more,

Hi Steven,

Yeah, I actually have a good idea of how to word the alt tags and d links, I
just need to know how to provide the link to the information.  Are d links
used in pdf files?  Can someone show me an example?  
Alt tags (using the make accessible plugin) will not work since they have a
limit to the number of characters (225)
