Subject: another alt question


I've read with great interest the discussion regarding the purpose and
content of alt text.  So far, the emphasis has been on images that are
"decorative" or supplemental in some way to the main content of a page.

My question is this: what if the images _are_ the content--for example, a
photo gallery or artist's online portfolio?  My guess is that long desc
would be the way to go, but I'm not sure.
