I would think it should be handled exactly the way browsers do for 
missing images, but there's no consensus on that.

> Otherwise, the element represents the text given by the alt

an image is present but has been omitted from the rendering.

I do like Chrome's behavior, where the user sees both the alt text and
 a broken image icon. This presents the most information to the user.
