Alt text that indicates the function/destination of the link is, IMO, required for accessibility and stuff. The title text or equivalent should be used in the alt. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set browser to block all images. 2. Open http://www.mozilla.org/ 3. Read the link text displayed in place of the Mozilla logo (top left) Actual Results: I saw text ("mozilla logo") that seemed to indicate that I could download a copy of the logo by following the link. Expected Results: It should have shown me text that would have seemed to indicate that I could go to the Moz home page by following the link. "mozilla logo" is one step above "mlogo.gif" as alt text. If it were a logo without the link, I'd stump for alt="". As it is, I'd suggest "mozilla home page", but just duplicating the title text would be an improvement. This is apparently part of (a) template(s). I tried editing /download.html with the "edit this page" link (not available on the home page) but didn't get access to the logo part of the page. Hence no patch. Sorry.
What about just "Mozilla"? That duplicates the text shown in the image itself, which is what ALT is for.
