Gotcha. Thanks.

This one puzzles me. I check my pages with
Image Off in Navigator 3.0, but - having just
added ALT="" to all my smaller images such
as line spacers, it doesn't seem to make
much difference. With or without the ALT tag,
a spacer shows
up as a faint grey vertical line.

Likewise bullets are still little outlined
squares. Neither one are large enough for
people to see the image icon.
