    resolved [RESOLVED] Work around for browsers on the BlendTrans Effect and changing Alt Tags

    I have a site I've been maintaining and working on for quite awhile, and it's at: http://wonderlandmurals.com. The pages with the scrolling thumbnails work just fine in IE, but the alt tags for the large picture are not changing or showing up in other browsers. I have only done a few pages to add in the alt tags for descriptions, but the lady who owns the site views it on a MAC computer and says she doesn't see them. The pictures do change for her, just not the pretty blending-which is fine with us. Here's the code I use:

    The Function call:
    PHP Code:
    function fadeElement(image,desc) { 
    if (
    document.all) { 
     if (
    animal.filters && animal.filters.length>0)
     
    animal.filters.blendTrans.Apply(); 
    animal.src=image
    animal.alt=desc;
    if (
    animal.filters && animal.filters.length>0)
    animal.filters.blendTrans.Play(); 

    else { 
    animal.src=image;
    animal.alt=desc;
    }

    the Thumbnails:
    PHP Code:
    <div id="scroller">
              <
    div class="content" onMouseOver="this.style.backgroundColor='#EDDA70'" onMouseOut="this.style.backgroundColor=''"><img src='images/Castles/pinkcastle_100.jpg' alt="Click to Enlarge" width="95" height="95" border="0" onMouseUp="fadeElement('images/Castles/pinkcastle_450.gif','Pink and Playful castle window')">          </div>
              <
    div class="content" onMouseOver="this.style.backgroundColor='#EDDA70'" onMouseOut="this.style.backgroundColor=''"><img src="images/Castles/CCF000_100.jpg" alt="Click to Enlarge" width="95" height="95" border="0" onMouseUp="fadeElement('images/Castles/CCF000_450.gif','Princess Room with castle window, birds and ribbons')">          </div>

            </
    div
    The Main Picture:
    PHP Code:
    <img src="images/Castles/pinkcastle_450.gif" alt="Pink and playful Castle Window" height="450" width="450" id="animal" name="animal" style="filter:blendTrans(duration=3)"

    Drop the document.all
    Change the reference to
    Code:
    var animal = document.getElementById('animal ');
    Image transitions
    At least 98% of internet users' DNA is identical to that of chimpanzees

    haha!! I found out why mozilla does not show the alt - they don't recognize it the way IE does. Technically, the ALT tag is if the images don't show - which is fine, but I got so use to also having the little tooltip come up, that I forgot I need to use TITLE tags instead because that is the job... so I added in the Title tag to my main picture, add in the function to change the title as well as the alt tag - and it works beautifully! Thanks anyway, and I hope this helps someone else
