Derrick, thanks for offering to help. It would be a great help if you
could give us the stats on the following:

How often is ONLY an image used as the target of a link in
hAtom/hReview/hCard/hCalendar? In other words, how often does this happen:

<a href="http://www.foo.com/"><img src="foo.jpg" alt="Foo" /></a>

How often is 'alt' defined for those images?

How often is 'title' defined for those images?

Does the alt/title usually match what the image is depicting?
