Hello, David.  Yes the fortune is an image, and the program is not
able
to give an "alt text" tag [at least not with my programming skills]. 
I
was thinking about reprogramming the site.  I will see if I can make
the
program serve out random text.

Thanks for letting me know about this!!!

Later,
Kyle
