This test case is intended to fail because the image button (for form submission) has a very inaccurate text alternative. This test is only for the text alternative of the image button, not for the label of the text input field or other parts of the page.
“Rules” refer to success criteria in WCAG 2.0, checkpoints in WCAG 1.0 and similar requirements.
The test case fails the following success criterion at line 13, column 90: http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/Overview.html#text-equiv-all.

alt attribute but the attribute does not contain all non-decorative text in the image.

alttext: see the public comment Technique H36: test procedures has no requirements on alt text.
