In IE6 when mouse is over <img> tag TITLE is displayed - but in NS7 nothing is displayed - how to work around this as I would like the text to be displayed in NS7.

Hover with &lt;a&gt; and &lt;img&gt;

Hi allan,
Alt text is only supposed to show up when the image can't display.
If you give the image a title as well as alt the title should display for both IE6 and Netscape 7.

Hope that helps.

Hover with &lt;a&gt; and &lt;img&gt;

It looks like you put "titles" in all of your '<a>'s, but not in your '<img>'s.

Put them in the '<img>' lines also.
