Quoting "Tee G. Peng" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:

If it's decorative image, why not make it to background image? This is
most appropriate way to handle it, and you don't need to worry about
blank alt tag.

Depending on the situation, it's not always possible to add images as non-repeating CSS. For instance, think of a CMS environment with multiple, non-technical authors using a WYSIWYG plugin/editor. It's unrealistic in those situations to expect those authors to assign an ID to a container element, add appropriate padding, and set the image as CSS background (also often they won't even be able to add CSS in the first place).

For hand-crafted pages, done by a web artisan, it's true that using CSS is the more elegant solution. It's just not appropriate in all situations at this point.
