Description Sam Ruby 2010-06-02 19:11:50 UTC
Remove "User agents may also apply heuristics to help the user make use of the image when the user is unable to see it, e.g. due to a visual disability or because they are using a text terminal with no graphics capabilities. Such heuristics could include, for instance, optical character recognition (OCR) of text found within the image."

Is this a bug report following our process, or instructions from the chairs regarding a previously escalated issue? If the latter, how should I mark this bug? The normal boilerplate doesn't seem like it would apply in this case.
Comment 2 Sam Ruby 2010-06-04 08:16:32 UTC
Please treat this as REOPENED and WGDecision per the Decision Policy.  (Issue 66 previously did not have an associated bug).

Checked in as WHATWG revision r5101.
Check-in comment: Remove a paragraph from the W3C version by request of the chairs. Add a list of differences between the versions of the spec to the WHATWG version now that there's more than a few. Add a paragraph to the W3C version mentioning this. Make it easier to keep track of what is in what version of the spec when editing.
