There is no alt tag the w3 specs. (all elements).
What's it meant to do? I'm sure there's a standards compliant alternative.

yes, that's the one! I have an image map, which when you hover over the links in IE gives the names of the links. I was wondering whether there is a way of doing that in Netscape? Or if in actual fact I need to do it as I have placed standard text links at the bottom of the page..?
alt= what to display in place of the image if the browser can't display the image
title= what to display as a tooltip when the mouse goes over the field.
All modern browsers support these actions. IE also support displaying alt= as if it were title= which is a harmless addition to the standard as long as you remember to code the title=
waoo, thanks ! I didn't know that !
I always used title for the links and alt for the images... by seeing the results on IE, I assumed it was basically the same thing...
Thanks a lot for bringing that piece of info ! ( I feel like a newbie... *blushes* )
