Bug#441243: Problem determining dependencies if user is blind
Good point. Thank you for your suggestion. I am trying to send it to
the right place so that it won't be forgotten.

Are you sure? The images seem to have alt tags, but also
class="hidecss" which I think hides it. Then ul.uldep adds images
back in as list-style-image, but I think we can't reliably add alt
text to images used in that way.
As a temporary fix, you can switch CSS off in most browsers, but
I think this is a bug of the new design of packages.debian.org.
What's the best fix? Put depends/recommends/suggests headings in
between the ul tags? Try to make the images replace the bullet points
somehow? (list-style: none and reduce the left margin or padding?) Or
use different shapes for the different types? (disc, circle, square?)
