Re: Specifying empty alt text in A-Prompt

Just what sort of image is it that you are trying to put blank alt text
with? If it's just a spacer, you should use style sheets or some other
method to achieve the spacing. This alleviates the problem of trying to
figure out what to use for alt text altogether. Do you have a code sample
or something that we can see?
