    Default Ext.Img has no alt config

    I want to supply alternate text with an image but the Ext.Img class has no alt config to do this.

    I noticed Ext JS 4.1 has this ability and it would be a useful enhancement for Sencha Touch 2.

    By default the Ext.Img works by specifying the image as the background image on the <div> so the alt config would not make a difference.

    You have the error event to handle any error on the image like not being able to load.

    The default option if mode is "background" then a div is rendered but if the mode is anything else then an img tag is rendered.

    The html5 spec has the alt tag as a required attribute.

    The reason behind this is we've had a WCAG 2.0 compliance check run against our mobile Sencha 2 website and this is one of the non-compliant areas.
