Hi,

Was looking into the draft WCAG 2.0 HTML Techniques for further ideas
(maybe a photo of Wendy) but they also use a logo example:

| <img src="companylogo.gif" alt="Company Name">

The WCAG folks mention a "wheel of fortune" example further down in the
document which I prefer. Which ever example we decide upon, it may be
helpful to synch with WCAG to make sure that same example is the main
one used for the ALT Techniques (to provide some consistency throughout
the documents).

Regards,
  Shadi

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...
