ALT specifies what replaces the image when it cannot be displayed.
It should *not* be a description of the picture, unless the description
is relevant to the rest of the text. Using ALT="[swirl]" is evil -
almost as evil as the infamous ALT="[Company Logo]".
The swirl is a decoration and carries no information. Hence the alt
attribute should be empty.
