Section 4.8.1.1.3 includes several code examples with corresponding images. In
some cases the images form part of a working example of the code (such as the
W3C links), but in others the purpose of the images isn't as clear (to screen
reader users relying on the alt text).

Suggest changing the alt text for the print preview image to "Print preview
icon", and the alt text for the search image to "Search button".

For the PIP Co example, suggest changing the following text:

"In this example, a picture representing a company logo for the PIP Corporation
has been split into two images, the first containing the word PIP and the
second with the abbreviated word CO. The images are the sole content of a link
to the PIPCO home page."

To something like:

"In this example, a company logo for the PIP Corporation has been split into
the following two images, the first containing the word PIP and the second with
the abbreviated word CO. The images are the sole content of a link to the PIPCO
home page."
