Hi there, I'm testing out the length of the alt attribute on image elements. The W3C doesn't specify a maximum length in the HTML 4.01 specification. The WCAG (Web Contents Accessibility Guidelines) doesn't say anything about this either. So let's find out how many characters a search engine keeps in its database. I thought about this when I wanted to put some (scanned) articles on the web. Of course it would be very handy to do this with <object type="image/png" data="article.png">[Fallback article text, marked up in HTML, here]</object> but Internet Explorer doesn't really support this. And I just want to know anyway.
