    The alt attribute is not designed to be visible. Try using both alt and title and see if that helps.

    Ray is correct — use the title attribute. The alt attribute is for alternate content in text-only browsers and other browsers in which do not support images. But the fact that IE displays alt text isn't a bug, it's a feature.

    thank, i'll use TITLE in future ... but my client still saying that she doesn't see the bubble tooltip.

    Can we enable/disable this on Explorer for MAC and if yes, how to???

    This will likely be different depending on what version of IE for the Mac you are using.

    That being said, this is where you would enable/disable the ToolTip feature on IE 5.0 (2010) for Mac.

    1. Open IE browser
    2. Click on Edit>Preferences
    3. Click on Web Browser>Browser Display
    4. Top-Right area for Toolbar settings has ToolTip flag.

    I hope that helps.
