Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: RFE 513426: Text alternative for tables

/ Bob Stayton <bobs@caldera.com> was heard to say:
| Just to clarify, the "text alternative" is a description of
| the contents of the table, not a plain text formatted representation
| of the table content (like nroff produces), right?

Correct. It gives, for example, audio browsers something to say before
the reader goes to the trouble of getting his software to decipher all
the rows and columns.

                                        Be seeing you,
