On Web sites I have been asked to view, I suggest putting in the name as alt
text, eg alt="Rebecca Cox". The longdesc attribute could be used to describe
any detailed inormation (eg age, clothing ...). Otherwise, for further
essential information (contact ...) I would suggest placing text near the
photo for all to read.

I'm making a page about a group of people, with small photos of each
person, and wondering if it would be appropriate to try to give as
alt text / longdesc, something equivalent to the information you
would get about each person, from looking at the photos. ie age,
ethnicity, style of dress etc (being polite of course!)

What do people think about this?
