Hi Gregg,

We had a technique that said

ALT="" and  ALT=" " were ok

but ALT=&amp;nbsp; was not.

But this has recently been questioned.  We need to decide on this one.

Is ALT=&amp;nbsp;  OK? Or not?

&nbsp; is a presentational character entity. img {white-space: pre;}
in CSS would achieve the same result.

Best regards,
