Testing tools such as validators should give a warning that this page is probably violating the SHOULD-level requirement that external descriptions which are a fragment of a document should be a well-formed fragment. Using an empty element as a description is almost certainly an inadequate description
The image is a drawn cartoon, on the left is a parson in a wheelchair in profile, facing toward the centre of the image, under a banner with the text "e-democracy?" on it. In front of the person is stairs, at the top of the stairs is a table. On the table is a computer, whose screen says "Vote!" and has a red and a green button
The image is signed in the space under the floor that is at the top of the stairs with an "R" rune flipped backwards, somewhat resembling a "Я" with top and bottom border lines sloping upward from left to right, and is marked ©2013. It was actually drawn by Charles McCathie Nevile.
This paragraph is not part of the description. As of September 2013 there is no conformance requirement making it a failure to read this paragraph, but best practice would be to present only the description, and not this part.
The description is encapsulated in a well-formed fragment, but since the target of a link is an empty element it is not possible to positively identify it.
