- Why html image alt text doesn't work in Firefox and IE
- <img src="qwertyabcdef.gif" alt="This is a message that used to appear when your mouse hovers over the image (if you were using an older MSIE browser) ">
- alt= no longer displays text with a mouseover (in MSIE). It is now necessary to use title=
- <img src="qwertyabcdef.gif" title="This is a message that should appear when your mouse hovers over the image">
- Image ALT vs TITLE: Using ALT & TITLE Attributes In Image Tags - The Wpromoter
- In the context of the image tag, the ALT attribute displays when an image doesn’t load, and the title attribute displays on mouseover. ALT has potential SEO (search engine optimization) benefit, TITLE does not.
- Title tag vs Alt text tag...browsers show Title instead of ALT?
- The alt attribute should be shown in place of the image, any time the image isn't available (eg text only browser, user has turned images off, image not found or not yet loaded). The title attribute should be shown as a tooltip on :hover for any browsers that support that functionality. You may in some cases decide that you want to use the same text for both, or you may decide to have different text, it depends on the situation and the image.
Unfortunately, because for years IE has incorrectly shown the alt text as a tooltip on :hover if there's no title attribute given, a lot of people have assumed that's what is supposed to happen. It isn't. Only the title should ever be shown as a tooltip on :hover (and you can likewise put a title on any element to get a tooltip).

- When an '@' is part of the domain in a Web address, the browser treats the string to the left of it as a user name to fill in any userid prompts, and everything on the right side as the domain name. This is perfectly legitimate syntax. (Standard document about URIs)
Malicious coders, such as phishers, often will use this technique to obscure the actual address of the site they send you to. For example, they might send you a message that appears to be from Paypal and include a link that looks something like this:
(The IP address I used is illegal for the same reason they use 555 phone numbers on TV shows.)
Notice, the numeric string to the right of the '@' mark. This link will not take you to www.paypal.com, but to 64.225.264.128. But most unsophisticated users won't notice the difference. Still, all of this monkey business is perfectly legal (if immoral) under the URI standard.
So what does it actually look like? Try pressing the button below. In the Status bar, the link appears to take you to the White House site, but it actually takes you to the latest column of one of our eWEEK columnists.

The actual link was:
The applications for phishing attacks are pretty self-explanatory. The viewer will think they're on www.paypal.com, or whatever, but they will actually be who-knows-where.
