In testing recent Opera builds with VoiceOver I noticed alt handling has  
gone a bit skewy. If you want to file bugs on this at  
http://bugs.opera.com please try to provide specific details of the URI at  
which it happens, what the behaviour is and what you expected for each  
image - that helps us localise the problem rather than just collect  
another duplicate report that "something is a bit odd".
