    Unhappy What does CynthiaSays want from me?

    Can someone tell me what CynthiaSays want from me?

    I get the warning message for: http://www.webnauts.net

    9.5 Provide keyboard shortcuts to important links (including those in client-side image maps), form controls, and groups of form controls.
    • Rule: 9.5.1 - All Anchor, AREA, BUTTON, INPUT, LABEL, LEGEND, and TEXTAREA elements are required to use the 'accesskey' attribute.
      • Warning - One or more Anchor, AREA, BUTTON, INPUT, LABEL, LEGEND, and TEXTAREA elements do not use the 'accesskey' attribute.
    Thanks in advance for your kind support.

    cynthia's interpretation is bull, in my not so humble opinion.
    compare the w3c
    Provide keyboard shortcuts to important links
    to cynthia

    Redux I thought the same! Thanks though. Good to have a backUp!

    By the way, I want to have my website validated by Bobby, but as you might know, he does not accept empty (null) alt tags as (alt="").

    I have contacted them today explaining the problem, but to have my site validated, I used alt tags as (alt=" "). Do you consider this semantically wrong or invalid? This was the only option I had.

    Any idea? Thanks in advance!

    my view on this, from http://www.accessifyforum.com/viewto...?p=11186#11186
    coding in order to please bobby is just as bad as coding to a specific browser, in my opinion.

    having an empty alt="" indicates that the image is of no semantic importance, that it has no relevant content. anything else, even a single space (or ­ or similar) indicate that there is an alternative representation, thus inferring that the image does have meaning other than purely visual...
