Re: bobby: need to check for alt=""

WM:: "In terms of Bobby, then, surely ALT="" in an image link should
only generate an error if that is the only instance of that link. If
there is another link to the same place, without ALT="", then there is
no need to generate an error, since there is no error. IMHO."

WL: Right on or "hear, hear".  The problem as Charles said is not
fixable by automated checker but by author awareness.
