The alt tag which is'nt really the right discription is really called the attribute tag.

Subject: Re: [WSG] Alt versus Title Attribute



Tom Livingston provided the following information on 28/05/2008 3:26 AM:
Can anyone give me a clear example/explanation of the difference
between the alt attribute and the title attribute? How about a real
'attributes for dummies' reference?? The difference seems very slight
to me...


Hi Tom,

I may be wrong here but I've always worked on the premise that alt is
alternative text for when the image isn't available (For whatever
reason) and the title is the title of the image.  An example would be
alt="Customer Care Logo" title="We Care about you"

However as I am always learning I may learn something here today.

Andrew
