Subject: Re: Useful  implementation of IMG ALT 

AS someone who runs my browser with images off the IMG ALT can tell me
two things :

1) The name of the image to see if it could be of interest or is it just
a decorative ornament ? 

2) Its filesize to see if it's worth waiting for.

If I don't know this, then I usually don't even bother downloading them.
