Description:
B.3.5.1 Model "A" Accessible Practice: Any examples of authoring practices in documentation (e.g., markup, screenshots of WYSIWYG editing views) demonstrate level "A" accessible authoring practices.
 [RS1]Does this mean that any demo which inserts an image needs to add alt text to the image?  I think that’s too stringent.  We should find a way to re-state which still maintains the spirit of this though.
 [JR2]Yes it does…let’s imagine a video tutorial of “insert image”…if the tutorial showed how to browse for and choose a source and left it there, fine. But if it then showed the person clicking OK and ignoring the alt field that would be a problem.
