I know "That's how it is on the site" - doesn't mean it is 100% correct or
best practice ;-) (The WSTF project will allow us to improve many things :-)

I just don't want to mislead people about logos that are also key links! So,
maybe a more generic example would be better - say, the photo of Tim
[alt="photo of Sir Tim Berners-Lee"]?

BTW, the WAI logo on <http://www.w3.org/WAI/> should not be linked.

That's how it is on the site, with title:
<a title="WAI Home" href="/WAI/">
<img align="left" alt="Web Accessibility Initiative logo" border="0"
src="/Icons/wai">
</a>

Since we want to keep this example as simple as possible, and the
example does not have context saying it is a link to another page, I
vote we leave as is. OK? Alternatively, we use a generic image & alt
example so as to avoid confusion with the logo at the top of the page...
