looking at the results from the Opera mama survey of web pages

the Total analyzed URLs was  3,509,180 [1]

the total number of pages containing a meta element with name=generator was
942,051

so that appears to equate to missing alt will not be flagged as an error on
37% of web pages.
Is this correct or have i missed something?
