I may be mistaken, but I thought that it was the alt text that was supposed to pop up when I hovered over an image. Anyway, I entered alt text on some images, and upon testing the page, nothing pops up when I hover over the same images.

I tested the same browsers out on other (remote) sites and the popups were working there.

thanks,

scott

what are you using the Alt attributes for??

are you wanting to comply with w3 standards or are you trying to impliment a tooltip system

popup alt text is mistakenly only supported in IE. us the title attribute for the same effect e.g.
<img src="horse.jpg" alt="grey horse in field" title="grey horse in field">

Quoting for truth here. The ALT attribute is the ALTernative information displayed when image can not be shown.
