Response from the Working Group
Because C9 is a technique about the use of decorative images, we will remove
this example the next time we update the Techniques. Technique C30, Using
CSS to replace text with images of text and providing user interface
controls to switch, provides a more in-depth look at how an author might use
image-replacement. For background, note that C30 requires that authors
provide a user interface control to switch to a presentation that includes
only programmatically determined text.
