Hi All

I've got a graphical link on my site with the following alt text
"This Web Accessibility icon serves as a link to download eSSENTIAL
Accessibility assistive technology software for individuals with
physical disabilities.
"
it triggers a warning that I should be using a long desc because it
is over 150 characters, however it really isn't necessary as it isn't
describing what the graphic looks like but what it symbolizes. Is
this acceptable or do I need to change it?

cheers

Geof
