           Summary: Lady of Shalott example doesn't really "enhance the
                    themes or subject matter of the page content"
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: alt techniques (editor: Steven Faulkner)
        AssignedTo: faulkner.steve@gmail.com

The image in the first example of the section "Images that enhance the themes
or subject matter of the page content" doesn't really fit the section's title.
It seems to be purely decorative (though related to the theme), it doesn't seem
to actually change the meaning of the page. As such I think it would be
inappropriate to have inline alternative text  as written, in fact, it might
mislead a non-graphical user into thinking that the poem description was the
poem.
