Another reason to use the ALT attribute with the IMG tag is that the
text you type is used to "read" to people with disabilities. I
learned this when I taught a course in Web design, which was
attended by a woman from Microsoft who was involved in such a
project. I thought it was a great idea.

Cheers, Nancy Hoft
