Done, more or less. (I had to change the example a bit to have conforming 
alternative text that was actually accessible, rather than the text in the 
suggested example which was really a caption; I made some changes to the 
spacing; and I changed the example's prose a little to be actually 
plausible as a real Web page. It would be helpful if the chairs could 
check the quality of proposed changes themselves so that I don't have to 
make these kinds of changes when the decisions are made, since having to 
do them myself means I run the risk each time of making a change that is 
then not in what the chairs consider the spirit of the decision, and then 
we have to do it all over again.)
