In the guidelines it is recommended to provide alt content for invisible
images. For a sighted user, these images donnot appear. But the alt
comment may waste time of visually impaired users. 

I proposed to put a single white space in the alt comment. Is it a good
idea ? Which comment should be used for wasting the less time possible.
