--- Comment #1 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
There’s no good way to prevent this. An author may intentionally put a "<"
character in an alt attribute for legitimate reasons; e.g., alt="Image showing
'2 < 5'" or even "<img>" or whatever other markup; e.g., alt="Image showing an
syntax-highlighted <img> element with the 'alt' attribute"
