This is no big deal. I can't read any alt text on images.

Any ideas?

I had this happen when I had a set of <p> tags nested in a <div> that contained imgs. My alts & linked images didn't work and you couldn't even right click the image to view its properties. To fix my problem I changed the set of <p> tags to <div> tags.

The IE 6 issue was nothing...before I fixed the problem the whole div was wacked in Opera and was completely invisible in Mozilla. Changing the one set of tags got all the browsers working and looking the same.

Sorry, i should have been more specific the problem is with IE6, not my site. I can't view alt tags anywhere on the Web.

AFAIK, only Windows browsers use the alt text in this way (perhaps only MSIE). The purpose of the alt text is to be displayed as an alt-ernative when the image is not (eg. in text browsers) not as a 'tool-tip'.

Maybe this will help. I use alt text and the title attribute, using the same text in both. It works for me.
