IMG ALT tags

Recommended Posts

Not so much PHP as HTML, but I have a question. I'm noticing that as I write the script for my webpage that my IMG ALT do not work the same in Netscape and Firefox as they do in IE. In IE, they "pop up" on mouse rollover. This does not occur with the other two. Is there some trick to this, or is it just disabled in Netscape and Firefox?

Actually that's a 'flaw' in IE (a non-compliance with the HTML specifications) and it shouldn't be there. ALT is correctly used as 'text replacement' for non-visual browsers. If you want a 'tooltip' cross-browser, then use the TITLE attribute.
