Subject: Re: [emergency] Issue #29: Updated Suggested Language
I'm not sure this example fully reflects the intent of <resourceDesc>. As we've discussed earlier, <resourceDesc> was intended to be roughly equivalent to an"alt=" attribute in an HTML <img> tag... in that it would be a useful description for the benefit of folks who can't see an image for personal or technological reasons. Just restating the MIME type doesn't really achieve that, does it? - Art >This is an amended proposal from the earlier one >(http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/emergency/200312/msg00002.html). >As I mentioned in the 12/9 call >(http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/emergency/200312/msg00026.html), >Eliot and I had some offline discussions to clarify.
