Hi Jeanne,

A few things:
- My understanding was that the existing 1.2.3 and 1.2.4 would go.
- I'd prefer to link the entire term " text alternatives for non-text content" as we do in ATAG2 (http://www.w3.org/TR/ATAG20/#def-Text-Alternatives)
- first "user agent" should be linked?
- "assistive technologies"

ATAG2 also has these other potentially useful terms:

markup language: A system of text annotations (e.g., elements in HTML) and processing rules that may be used to specify the structure, presentation or semantics of content. Examples of markup languages include HTML and SVG.
- markup of some content is the set of annotations that appear in the content.

programmatically determined (programmatically determinable)
Information that is encoded in a way that allows different software, including assistive technologies, to extract and present the information in different modalities. ATAG 2.0 uses this term in two contexts:
- Processing content: Whether the authoring tool is able to extract information from the web content (e.g., to extract the language of content from the markup).
- Communication between the authoring tool and assistive technology: For non-web-based user interfaces, this means making use of platform accessibility services, APIs, and, in some cases, document object models. For web-based user interfaces, this means ensuring that the user agent can pass on the information (e.g., through the use of ARIA).

Jan, can you check if I did the definitions the way you want them in 
1.2.1 and 1.2.2?
