This question about This website: Needs followup in Tasks

required attribute "alt" not specified.

This may not matter much in that I think I read somewhere that the Foswiki skin is changing.

Anyway, whilst working on a plugin I found that the current skin on the Foswiki site does not validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

The arrors are:

required attribute "alt" not specified.
…/pencil.gif" width="16" height="16" /></a></span><span><a href="http://foswik

In short, there are no alt attributes supplied with the img tag that refer to edit, print, etc... at the top of the page.

There is a title attribute supplied on the link. But in XHTML 1.0 Transitional every img tag much have an alt attribute

The complete item, with spacing for clarity:

  <a href="" title="Edit this topic">
    <img src="" width="16" height="16" />

Now I wonder which standard(s) we're aiming for. smile
