This is from the guidelines section 2.73.

I think people more technically competent than I am may wish to comment to
them about the accessisibility of this form of information.  If anyone is
willing to please let me know.

your translated documents and hyperlink directly to each in the translated
language and in English.

∑	The use of text in GIF It is important that when text cannot be published
in standard HTML formats that it be made available as formats should be
avoided. This would not be available if the browser had the graphics was
turned off, the exception for GIFs being text navigation buttons in scripts,
such as Bengali. The Ďaltí attribute should be in English and identify the

also be included on this page and when appropriate in both English and the
translated language.
