[jaws-uk] Re: Headings in web pages

Hi Tink,

I didn't take a lot of time over this but for example, they
are using a file called "Transparent.jpg" in around 30
places on the main page.  However, while this is used as a
kind of spacer between various sections and other
illustration, they have given it an Alt Tag of "Spacer
Image".

Ironically, I could not find the words "Header" or "Heading"
or similar, anywhere.  That said, a) I may have missed
something, and b) only one person seems to have this
problem, which makes me wonder if it's a local configuration
issue.

George.
