Validates fine with (and without) the alt attribute.  JAWS will read title
or alt, but I find it easier to tell developers that when they use an image,
they always use alt.

code starts...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"
    <title>form test</title>

<form action="foo" method="get">
<input type="text" name="foo" />
<input type="image" src="image.gif" name="foo" value="foo" alt="submit" />

...code ends.
