                    Practices to where it is relevant.

The following NOTE section does currently occur after 4 pargraphs about how
User Agents SHOULD or MAY handle the longdesc attribute:

   ]] Best practices for full descriptions of images are beyond
      the scope of this document, but there are many resources

  Please, instead, move the above NOTE so that it occurs ommediately after the
following paragraph:

   ]] Authors should put descriptions within an element which is
      the target of a fragment link (e.g. 
      longdesc="example.html#description") if a description is
      only part of the target document. [[


  * The cited NOTE section relates to authoring and should thus occur directly
after the normative information on authoring.

  * It is particulary offputting that the cited NOTE section currently occurs
directly after a paragraphs about how User Agents MAY treat invalid longdesc
attributes. With the wrong glasses on, this could give the impression that is
OK for authors to fill the content of @longdesec with textual content (rather
than a URL).
