In the last example of section 21.2.1 [1], the alternate text provided 
is not a good example considering that in the real world, this is 
considered poor.

   “This user agent cannot process a java applet.”

Should be changed to something like:

   “Your may download this <a href="http://www.example.com/">plugin</a>
    to experience this media type.  /continue alternate content…/”

or just, the place holder:

   “Alternate Content…”
