Jonathan on longdesc

Jonathan has insider knowledge that Mark will not be covering the longdesc attribute in his accessibility series. This it not because longdesc is not a useful accessibility tool, but simply because it does not fit the “fire and forget” nature of Mark’s series. Jonathan’s post discusses longdesc and the difficulties involved in adequately describing an image.
