Comment (by sabernhardt):

 The balloon "alt" text is slightly visible; the g and p descenders in
 "graphic" can show. One way to hide it is with `text-indent` (and any of
 you may know a better way):

         text-indent: 100%;
         white-space: pre;
         overflow-x: hidden;

 For what it's worth, I'm not convinced that saying ''what the graphic
 displays'' would help in the welcome banner. The version number is already
 in the text, and I would consider a balloon-only image merely decorative
 (with no text alternative). The idea this image conveys—"5.9 is here!
 Let's celebrate!"—fits better on the About page, where the header text
 does not mention the version number. And any new alternative text
 theoretically could be added to **both** pages.
