Mouse over image text is not displaying, how do I fix it?
Web pages created using Yahoo Sitebuilder. Jpeg images inserted on various pages. Mouse Over alternate text "Click for enlarged image" added in image properties along with image file location. The problem is - Mouse Over alternate text does not display when placing mouse pointer on the image. However the enlarged image does display when clicked. Internet Explorer works correctly, it displays the alternate text. Is there a fix for Firefox? Thanks

The title attribute is meant to show as a tooltip if you hover an image or link and the alt attribute is meant to be displayed if the image is not available.
If there is no title attribute, but there is an alt attribute then IE will show the alt attribute as a tooltip.
Firefox doesn't do that, so if the title attribute is missing then you do not see a tooltip if you hover an image or link.
Thanks for the info.
