           Summary: Confusing alt text in the second The Lady of Shalott
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: alt techniques (editor: Steven Faulkner)

The second "The Lady of Shalott" example would read as follows to a
non-graphical user:

   *** The Lady of Shalott ***

   ** A poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson **

   A painting inspired by the poem.

   On either side the river lie
   Long fields of barley and of rye,

This would make it look like the first line of the poem was "A painting
inspired by the poem" which is quite confusing.
