Hi

(looks over at Lorraine)

I've been fussing and fretting lately (as I tend to) about various Image Replacement methods and which if any might be considered "accessible" whilst still working in a decent range of browsers.

Is there one that is "better" than the rest or are they all just as bad as each other.

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

Oh well - just thought I'd check! Wink

Thanks Lorraine.

Monty Python and Indiana Jones suggest the third alternative: the cover-up method.

Thanks Lorraine that's great!

Does away with the problems of display:none and the hiding off-screen thing which worries me because of possible really big screen resolution problems.

Yeah - they're fairly few and far between with me!
