Subject: Re: [dita] Action items from 22 August 2017 meeting

Per my action item, here is an example of alt text using keys for images:

<keydef keys="fg_weather-notams" href="" format="png">
    <topicmeta><linktext>Weather &amp; NOTAMs dialog box showing a station report</linktext></topicmeta>


This example incorporates the guidance from:



Otherwise, if <linktext> is specified inside of <topicmeta>, the contents of <linktext> are used as the effective content.

Note: Because all elements that get effective content will eventually look for content in the <linktext> element, using <linktext> for effective content is a best practice for cases where all elements getting text from a key definition should result in the same value.


Question: should this be added to the dita.oasis-open.org/spec/archSpec/base/processing-keyref-for-text.dita topic, or are we managing errata02 differently?


Thanks and best regards,
