           Summary: img elements with role="presentation" and without
                    alt="" fail validation
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: ian.html@gmail.com

On the Presentation Role section of W3C ARIA Authoring Practices (
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria-practices/#presentation_role ), it states that
img elements can be validly without alt="" if they have role="presentation".
However, W3C markup validator currently treats that as invalid.

Is that because of one of the following reasons?

* The statement conflicts with HTML5 spec
* The statement is true and HTML5 spec has not been updated
* The markup validator has a bug
