What's the goal?  Is it "accessibility", is it "accessibility
and usability", and for what audiences?  Are you shooting for
WCAG compliance (at what level), 508, or just best practices?
What sort of server-side solutions do you have available to
employ?

I'm not being a smart-ass here.  The issues related to web
accessibility have advanced quite a deal beyond simply "put alt
text in images" and there are a lot of questions that need to be
answered as background before a "good answer" can be formulated.
