Summary of Issue: Misuse of ALT
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In 6th item, it reads "Thus, if you want the alt attribute text visible on mouse-over, also include the text using the title attribute."

This could result in increasing misuse of alt attribute. alt attribute text is not meant to be visible on mouse-over.

Proposed Change:
Remove this sentence.
