Does anyone know of any utilities out that would detect any IMG tags
on a web page that does not have an ALT attribute?

Does dreamweaver have some kind of detection tool?

You can run it through the html validator at [validator.w3.org...] It always tells me if I have missing ALT tags.

If you run Dreamweaver you should be able to find them also. Use the advanced search options to find all img tags that have no alt attribute.
