Document: TD
Item Number: H91
Part of Item: Examples
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Example incorrect
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In "Example 1c" the following is stated:

"In example 1c, the name will be concatenated from the different elements inside the link to read "Example Text"
Example Code:
<a href="www.example.com"><img src="example_logo.gif" alt="Example">Text</a>"

The code will in fact read "ExampleText" and not "Example Text". 

Proposed Change:
Thus, it should be advised that the user inserts a space in [alt="Example "] in order to ensure that it reads as intended. It should also be pointed out that failure to insert appropriate spaces in either the alt attribute, or between image and adjacent text will result in concatenation that will reduce legibility for AT users.
