The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-122: alt
text and description for Lady of Shalott example - Straw Poll for
Objections' (HTML Working Group) for Gregory Rosmaita.



---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to permit authors to provide text
alternatives for images considered to enhance the themes or subject matter
of a page
----
We have a Change Proposal to permit authors to provide text alternatives
for images considered to enhance the themes or subject matter of a page. If
you have strong objections to adopting this Change Proposal, please state
your objections below.
Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Objections: 
in accord with the consensus reached at the HTML WG face to Face meeting
at TPAC 2010 in Lyon: 

http://www.w3.org/2010/11/04-html-wg-minutes.html#item12 

and in fulfillment of the subsequent action with which i was tasked: 

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/actions/195 

and in accord with the discussion at the March 2011 HTML Accessibility
Task Force Face to Face: 

http://www.w3.org/2011/03/19-html-a11y-minutes.html#item01 

i am commenting on behalf ot the HTML Accessibility Task Force to 
indicate to the chairs, editor and working group that the "purely
decorative images" change proposal, located at: 

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/purely_decorative_images 

has the endorsement of the Task Force. The Accessibility Task Force,
therefore, urges the chairs to adopt:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/purely_decorative_images 

as reflective of both the HTML WG and the HTML Accessibility Task 
Force's final disputation on Issue-122 





---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to move advice about providing alt text
for "purely decorative images" out of the HTML5 spec
