Hi Shawn,

Have to have my say about logos, alt text and links!

In the example you use (drawn from the top of the page), the graphic is both
branding [Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) logo] and a link to the WAI
home page. Currently the example only indicates one purpose - branding. Is
branding the primary purpose? Probably. Then, the alt text is OK, but would
be better as "Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) logo - WAI home page".
[Alternatively, a link title could be added.] If the primary purpose is the
link to WAI - then the alt text would be better as just "WAI home page".

I update the Components document, incorporating the items from Friday's
teleconference and from email.

I added back in the ALT example (with revisions based on feedback from
Shadi and Wayne) and added an image along with it.
* Please send comments on the ALT image to the EO list
* Please send copyedits on the other areas to the EO editors list:

If possible, please send comments by Tuesday 28 September so that I can
incorporate them for a  review in another group on Wednesday.
