Hi there,

I would like to recreate the alt tag when you hover over an image in ie so that it also does it in firefox....

well actually to be more specific create text to appear like that, when you hover your mouse over an image (the image in this case is a button for a magnifyer).

I expect its really simple, Ive been browsing the web for an answer but expect it might be too simple to be listed. Can someone give me the html code?

can I slot it into the code below?

<td height="547" colspan="3"> <div><a href="bic-vbig3.jpg" class="MagicMagnify" rel="disableAutoStart:true; size:200px;"><img src="images/paint/bic-big2.jpg" border="0"/></a></div></td>

thankyou from a newbiee

If you want the text to pop up with an image in firefox you need to use a title attribute. For example; title="yourtitle"
