[VE][127] Error Message Feedback

I have a question regarding the use of the alt attribute for the img
tag.

I am using an image merely as a spacer on a web page, so I have not put
an alt attribute in the tag. When I run the page through the W3C
Validator, it is flagged as an error.

Is there any way to code the tag so that the validator knows the alt
attribute is not necessary?

Thanks!
