Whilst looking up "Opera" on the web (to define it
for the purposes of a WCMS procurement exercise),
I happened on http://www.opera.com/; intrigued
to see what the ALT text was for the masthead graphic
I discovered that (a) it is a background image (no problem
with that), but more significantly, that its message
Opera for your computer
is hidden from non-graphical user agents such as Lynx.
Why, I wonder, do Opera choose to present text-as-image,
and then not give unsighted visitors the same information ?
