hello javaranchers,
Well this is a kind of problem which probably noone noticed or may be may be noone came across this. I have a problem with alt tag. What happens is when i put cursor on image which has my alt tag it shows me the text. And the text which comes in the alt tag is very long. Actually the image is a button and our home page. So on the button itself we have tried to tell the details of the page. But by the time the use reads the description the alt tag dissapears. My question is Is there any way we can display the alt tag as long as possible. Yes we can also use layers but that will make the web page heavy. Is there any way thru which we can display the alt tag as long as possible. Or any other way thru which this thing can be done. Can anyone put any light on this.
Thanking you all in advance

If you do not want to go for layers, the only other solution I can think of is the status bar, if your text can fit there. Or maybe, you'll have to rephrase ur text.

Thanks Manish for your immediate reply. But i wanna use the text as alt where i can show the information of that button. Don't we have any conditions where we can manipulate alt tag and display it till we don't remove our cursor. As why i was hesitant in using layers one cannot use much layers in a file. Can't we handle it thru javascript. If anyone can put some light on this. And thanks once again Manish for your help
