Priority 1

Drawing of a house. For a simple, decorative or incidental image, a brief description may be all that is necessary: e.g.

This drawing of a house is just a drawing of a house, so the code could be:

<IMG SRC="home.gif" ALT="Drawing of a house.">

Link to the Home page.

If the image is linked, you must describe the destination or purpose of the link -- not the image, e.g.

Here, the drawing of a house is a button that links to the home page, so the code could be:

<A HREF="home.htm">
<IMG SRC="home.gif" ALT="Link to the Home page.">
