Hi all,
I have a question about the longdesc attribute.
WCAG 1.0 said in 1999 that this attribute is a priority1.
It said too that a "d-link" is a solution.
On my own experience, no graphical browser accept the longdesc attribute for img or frames.  Lynx doesn't accept it too.

Is WAI recommandation is still to use this longdesc attribute or no ?
If yes how can we justify this utilisation ?

thanks for your help
