Checkpoints - Do not provide text alternatives for decorative images
Images which are only there for decorative or layout control purposes should not have text alternatives. An alt attribute should be specified but it should be left empty or 'null'. This checkpoint will detect commonly named decorative images such as 'spacer.gif', and alt text containing only words such as 'blank','bullet','line','image','spacer'. If there are further decorative images you would like the checkpoint to recognize then please contact the Crownpeak DQM Support Team and they will be happy to help you and configure the checkpoint.

The checkpoint examines the entire HTML source code of a page and reports if any <image> tag to a decorative image has an alt tag.
