perhaps if you have a page we can look at, you'd get suggestions or
comments directly related to your question. my opinion, personally,
is that if you need alt text, it's a markup graphic. i wouldn't think
blind people, for example, really care if you have a pink background
with blue lines through it or if your headers have a fading green
gradient behind them.
a few other replies so far echo the things i would have added, so i'll
let you read those instead of repeating. :)
