    Description

      We are using Tika Server to extract text from HTML files. Tika extracts the alt text of image tags present in HTML files as [image: this is the alt text of the image]. This ends up in Solr and shows up in the results when we generate document summaries at query time (via Solr’s highlight functionality).

      If you PUT the attached HTML file to /tika, it will return the following response

      [image: Return to the homepage]
      This is a test

      It would be nice to have just this instead
