If you really want to be anal about the spec, I don't think this
would truly represent "text with an alternate image representation".
It is clearly an image with alternate text representation, and the
text representation isn't a very good substitute. To a reasonable
person, the meaning of my photostream is not a bunch of captions with
the text "(Use
a browser that supports graphic images to view)", the photos are the
meaning. In many cases, that meaning is difficult, perhaps
impossible, to fully convey in words.
