View Full Version : Alt text not working

06-02-2009, 09:39 PM
I've put together a very simple site in dreamweaver, its my first attempt at a site so there will be loads of mistakes. My first problem is in deamweaver when i put text in the alt box so when i scroll over a pic some text appears isn't working. I'll post a link to my site, there are 3 pics in the middle which link to other pages, any idea why my text isn't coming up when i scroll over them?
