Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-650) Missing required alt attribute on img tag
Date Sun, 01 May 2011 07:45:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-650?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13027438#comment-13027438

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-650:

Not sure what we should be putting into the alt attribute - word documents for example don't
have alt text for their images so we don't have any useful information to populate the attribute

> I've written a content handler that prints out the xhtml tags for conversion from a word
document with embedded images. For images, it does not generate the "alt" attribute for img
tags, which causes validation to fail. alt is a required attribute in XHTML.
> Here's a partial output from [http://validator.w3.org/check]:
> {quote}
> Error Line 3, Column 1026: required attribute "alt" not specified
> ...meta><title> </title></head><body><p><img src="embedded:image63.jpg"></img></p>

> The attribute given above is required for an element that you've used, but you have omitted
it. For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document types the "type" attribute is required on
the "script" element and the "alt" attribute is required for the "img" element.
> Typical values for type are type="text/css" for <style> and type="text/javascript"
for <script>.
