This validator (non-free, but available on the web) seems to pass
samizdat (e.g. belarus.indy) as USA <something-something-legal> Section 508
compliant, except for user generated content written directly in html
which has an img tag without an alt label:

e.g.  has a user-generated img tag

which is detected as non-compliant.  is OK.

The w3 validator seems to give the same results

i guess the question then is whether or not we should force a default
"alt" attribute into html written by users where they fail to put in an alt attribute. i guess the filename stripped of its suffix should
in general have some chance of being meaningful as an alt attribute?

What does plone do in this case?

Plone is quite possibly the best at that and yet another reason it
should receive more consideration from Indymedia.  Not a whole lot of
CMSs come Section 508 compliant out of the box.

Another solution may be to simply put a "skip to content" anchor tag
just after the body tag, display:hidden so it only appears to those
with screen readers.

There is one already :)

Plone is supposed to be very good on accesibility issues.
