Thanks everyone for your choices/suggestions. As I suspected might happen,
there were choices ranging from the brief to the expansive. I will probably
chose one that is somewhere in between. And, yes, maybe I will get around to
writing my own advice someday to add to the maelstrom.

Subject: [WebAIM] Writing good ALT descriptions

I am looking for a good resource to point people to who have questions about
writing good ALT descriptions. I could write one myself - well it would be
my opinion and not necessarily "good" in the eyes of everyone - but I would
rather have something that has been out there for a while, is mainstream and
generally well respected. It does not have to be long - in fact, I would
prefer something brief - and it should be fairly easy to understand.



Any suggestions or nominees?
