Re: Multiple display text/icons (treat as LC comment)

Hmm, take the example below. I think it is pretty clear what I am trying to
do and i think this should be valid.


   <displaytext>Everything on is wcag aa and mok
   <displayicon src="" />
   <displayicon src="" />

Following on from this example - it seems reasonable to me that if more than
1 icon is acceptable then more than 1 displaytext is also acceptable. i.e.
you should be able to have a displaytext for each icon you want to display.
However, i can only see this working if we can associate displaytext with
displayicons. This would be particularly useful in a powder application as
it would allow the app to display a list of icons with some text beside

MOK.png - everything on is MOK compliant
WCAG.png - everything on is WCAG AA compliant
ICRA.png - everything on has nakedness
