ALT tags

adding to One more question...or is it a tip? posted by Deb

ALT tags are only indexed by a couple of the
search engines (Infoseek and Lycos I believe,
but don't quote me).

The reason I don't recommend stuffing your
ALT tags with keywords is due to one of my
basic principles: never sacrifice the look
or content of your site in favour of keywords.
What is the purpose of ALT tags? It's for the
convenience of users browsing your site with
their graphics switched off, right? How
appealing will it be for somebody to see
spam all over your page? Hmmmmm...?
