“Ensure that equivalents for dynamic content are updated when the dynamic content changes.”

On a site where content is generated from a database, e.g., www.artforaids.org/home.asp, the imagery is also dynamically pulled from the database. So for each image, if the "alt" attribute were static, say "picture from the gallery", this isn't at all helpful to the visitor. The "alt" attributes should also be pulled from the database so you get, for example, "'El Olivo' by David Smith-Harrison".

Example

Before:

<img src="./gallery/<% =artArray(11,thisRow) %>_thumb.jpg" alt="Gallery Picture" />

After:

<img src="./gallery/<% =artArray(11,thisRow) %>_thumb.jpg" alt="<% =artArray(5,thisRow) %>" />
