I'm trying to load the W3C press release "W3C Standards Make Mobile Web
Experience More Inviting"[1], but when I access the page I'm prompted
for a username/password (which I don't have). It looks as if one of the
images is being loaded from an area which is password-protected, because
if I cancel the prompt I can still read the rest of the press release.

This error seems to occur on translations of the press release too (I
tried the French one too just to make sure) and in Firefox and Safari,
so I don't think it's a browser issue. I'm sure this can't be an
intended effect - it would be a bit odd to say the least to have a press
release with parts that can't be read by the public.
