I have another question related to the alt-attribute problem.

When I use alt="" because it is a meaningless picture, the blind user has no idea there is  a image in the page. But what to do when
I have to mention who has the copyrights of that meaningless image?

 IMO ..I  also tell by mentioning the copyright  next to the image or below of  it  "Here is an image but you cannot see it".. So I
 can be forced to use alt="meaningles image replacement" Or  should I provide a seperate page  in a site in which I
 mention all the persons who have copyrights in that site? This is usual in abook, but in a site???

Chaals, I don't know what your 2 Eurocents  you give for a opinion are really  worth, because Finland abolished them today already.
I think the Netherlands  will do also, we had only 5 cents  (stuiver) or more worth-coins  before the Euro. Too clumsy all those
small coins..  a mass in  weight and nothing worth..
