I need a method of displaying some text when Norton Ad Blocker blocks affiliate images, creating a sidebar consisting of nothing. Discussions of how this may affect the site's future existence aside, I need a method of putting that space to some good use.
Using the ALT="some text" isn't an option as Norton blocks even that.
Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

You could try making your alternate text into an image the same size as the ad and then use the image as a background on the ad's containing element(<td>,<div> etc).

Example:
<td style="background: url(/images/alt_text.gif);">Your ad code here</td>

Thanks Birdman,

Ashamed I didn't think of it myself. As usual, I looked past the obvious for the complicated solution. I had even been looking back at the old Netscape LAYER tags.
