Good question. Dreamweaver includes the Alt text field when you insert images, but it has no easy way to add the title attribute, and that’s what you need if you want the text to appear when you roll a cursor over an image in IE.
Here’s an example of what it looks like:
<img src=”photo.jpg” width=”250″ height=”360″ alt=”My Great Photo” title=”My Great Photo” />
Note that the code: alt=”My Great Photo” is alternative text, which is recommended because this text is used by screen readers for the blind that ‘read’ web pages to people.
Adding the code: title=”My Great Photo” is not redundant, but you don’t have to use the same text for both. The title text will appear when you roll a cursor of the image.
Hope that helps,
