Yes, but the graphic page in question is really not important. For example,
image in the first example says "All about Dave" and the link leads to
the page with one really big, bandwidth wasting GIF with my natal chart.
That's a joke, more or less. Pages with usable content have text alternative.
I use TAB tag inside my tables and I provide ASCII alternatives for
graphs and some images I consider important. This isn't what your average
HTML author would do.

I prefer more control because I know what I'm doing, which, again, is not
the case with Joe. H. Author. So, do as you please.
