I'm sure I can find users of Mosaic 1.x that do not have support for
ALT on IMG yet, so does this mean we should say: do not use image ?

Kind of far fetched, but without statistics on how many users are
affected by a particular problem (like: not being able to access
FRAMESET even when the FRAME are correctly named/titled), we can only
make our decision based on our own judgment call for what we see
around us.

I came to believe that if lynx supports it, then it's OK to author it
that way.
