First, it seems like a bad idea to add semantics information like ALT
text to a piece of style sheet.

The reason is that it's possible, likely in fact, that a particular
style sheet be dropped in favor of another one by the browser, so any
valuable information would be lost.

a few adjectives to 'content', but content it is, therefore it should be
part of the document.
