Rule LIST-2
Do not use inline images to create the appearance of a list.


Best Practice Type: Pass/Warning

If consecutive p elements contain an img element with the alt attribute content that includes a single character or the null content, it may be representing a bulleted list of items. If the markup is representing a bulleted or other type of list, it should use HTML list markup and CSS, for incorporating the custom bullet.
