The examples below sound like link text to me.  I have seen links  
that were individually changed to their respective languages.

Hello all,
Do you know if there is a means to specifiy language changes in a alt  
attribute or in the title of a link?
For example, if the alt of an image is : "Welcome to the Musée du  
how can I specify that "musée du louvre" is in French?

Second, if I have a link title or an alt attribute containing an  
abbreviation how can I expand this abbreviation?
Example: alt="UNO Homepage" title="UNO Homepage"
How can I specify that UNO means United Nations Organisation ?

If there is no means to specify language changes or abbreviations in  
alt or titles, how can I meet checkpoints 14.1 and 14.2?

Thank you in advance for any ideas.

Best regards
