Interesting that traditionally an empty ALTTXT tag meant that the screen reader should ignore the icon. However Safari is on its own for this interpretation. Google Chrome on Mac OS and Chrome and Firefox on Windows use the TITLE tag in these circumstances.  I suspect that many web designers are not aware of the above tradition, and that using the TITLE tag would improve Safari accessibility on some web sites.
