alt guidance needs simplification
Issue recorded on the WHATWG wiki: http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Img_Alt
Regarding 220.127.116.11.14 Guidance for conformance checkers
The complexity of the authoring guidance for the new alt attribute in HTML5 is bad for authors, and for author understanding.
We should remove the last two points in this section:
- "... document is an e-mail ..." - not a useful case
- meta generator - causes as many problems as it solves
As well as the authoring guidance in the section(s) below:
- Remove: 18.104.22.168.11 An image in an e-mail or private document intended for a specific person who is known to be able to view images.
