Implementing details for 3.12.1 (Text view)

3.12.1 Text View: For content authored in text formats, a view of the 
text source is provided. (Level A)

Intent of Success Criterion 3.12.1:

The source view is the ultimate fallback when the browser cannot 
properly render some content, or when the user cannot take advantage of 
the content as rendered or using the mechanisms provided.


When the content author failed to provide alt text or longdesc for an 
image, the user can, as a last resort, try to get some information by 
examining the source to see the image's URI, class, and similar attributes.
When the user wants to create a customized style sheet for a Web site, 
they need to identify the style, class, and id attributes it uses.
