What do you mean "alternative text"? The inputTextArea control is designed to allow the end-user to input text. Any alternatives would be whatever text the user has input.

Actually, I cannot find an "alt" attribute for the Struts 2 textarea tag either.

The only time I recall an "alt" attibute being used is the ALT property for images. On GUI browsers, the ALT text usually renders pop-up tooltext style when you hover your mouse over the image. In text-only browsers, it typically displays the ALT text instead of the image, since after all, the page is "text-only".

If you are simply looking for tooltips for inputText and textArea controls, there is no core HTML implementation for that and thus no core JSF implementation. Some of the third-party extension tagsets do have tooltip tags, though.
