[FIXED-1213] img Elements Created Using BLANK_IMAGE_URL Need an Empty alt Attribute
Several (8) places create a dynamic img element by using DomHelper or hard-coded markup using Ext.BLANK_IMAGE_URL as the src attribute. All of these places need to specify an empty alt attribute for the img element to be valid.
Thank you for the report, we'll go through and add them in.
This has been fixed up in SVN.
