This is a comment that resuls from test suite development in the 
BenToWeb project.
Technique H36 for SC 1.1.1 
is about alt attributes on images used as submit buttons. The 
description states: "This label indicates the button's function, but 
does not attempt to describe the image." However, the test procedure 
only checks for the presence of the alt attribute.

* Add a second step: "Check that the alt attribute indicates the 
button's function."
* Update the expected results: "#1 and #2 are true".

Best regards,
