HTML "alt" tag doesn't display

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Dick Stouffer, Oct 4, 2004.

  1. When you pass your cursor over a graphic which has an HTML "alt" tag, the text doesn't show.

    Is there a fix for this?

    This has been discussed before.
    The purpose of the ALT tag is to show *altenate text* for text only
    browsers. It's a IE *feature* that shows ALT as a tooltip.
    TITLE tag is supposed to show the tooltip.
