Actually the alt attribute WON'T fix this problem. Because the
microformat attribute is on the anchor tag, not the image.
Microformats grab the text in the tag. They only grab the image alt
text if the microformat class is on the image itself. Here's a
different example:

<a class="fn url" href="http://www.yahoo.com"><img src="foo.jpg"
alt="Mike Kaply"></a>

I realize this is a little contrived, but you get the idea.

In this case, the fn is empty.
