    Form inputs and images.....


    Hi,
    I'm stuck on this problem which only occurs in netscape browsers but it
    concerns displaying alternate text when
    you put the mouse over an image. The image I have is an input to a form.
    On IE when the mouse is run
    over the image the ALT text is shown however this does not work on Netscape.
    Is this just a browser issue
    or is it a problem with my code?

    Here is the code I'm using.....

    <INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME="pageName" VALUE="page2.html">
    <INPUT TYPE="image" VALUE="submit" SRC="/images/store/headers/image.gif"
    ALT="Click Here to Update Information" BORDER=0>


    Both these inputs are placed between form tags..

    An help at all would be appreciated, please feel free to email me any suggestions.


    Thanks a million.

    Joe

    That's not what the ALT is for, read the article on the use of ALT text in
    images at <http://www.htmlhelp.com/feature/art3.htm>.
    The TITLE attribute is more appropriate here, but NS 4.x doesn't support
    that. The only way I know is to use DHTML generated tooltips, see <http://tech.irt.org/articles/js202/index.htm>.
