Just a note on screen reader functionality.

If you provide three or more of the same character in succession such as *** 
or ---, unless a user makes a concious decision not to do so, the symbols 
will be rendered.  That is why I suggested three instead of less than three 
although I think it is the fault of an user agent/at combo that if alt 
displays only one character that it is ignored.
