Comment LC-2938
Commenter: Glenda Sims <glenda.sims@deque.com> on behalf of DEQUE

Resolution status:

I need to ask you a question about appropriate alt text for a logo with the letters TM (for trademark) embedded in it.

The context of the question...a State Farm logo with the registered trademark symbol after it https://www.statefarm.com/

While I know it is nit-picky...my personal interpretation is...that "Registered Trademark Symbol" has meaning and needs alt text.

I need an official W3C interpretation on this. Is alt text required for the "registered trademark symbol" or not?


Proposed Change:
It would be helpful to clarify this at http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/#sec14
