Thanks, Earl ... what a difference an 's' makes!  I found that in the 
field, there is a [last_rendered] which has the image.

So, for my next clueless act, here is the follow-on to this, which is 
even more confusing to me.

This is a grid display. Only one of the nodes on the first page actually 
-has- an image, and it is the final cell. If I create 
and in it, display the nid, I only get the display once, for the node 
with the image, not for any of the other cells. I infer from this that 
the template isn't used if there is no image, which makes sense. 
However, on the page, the cells for which there is no image end up 
displaying the alt text.

What would the template file name need to be so that if I displayed the 
nid it would display it for all those other cells - the template in 
which I can set $output to '' to -not- print the alt text?
