A background is a background, animage is content. When you replace links
or headlines with images then these images are content and need an
alternative text. This can't be done with backgrounds. However, a clever
replacement technique will have the real text content in there whilst
displaying an image.
The problem with images as content is that they are fixed to a certain
size (resizing them with percentages looks bad), so sometimes you need
to use an image as a background, and add a blank image above it to add
an alternative text.
