    Need ALT For each image

    I recently installed IE 5.5 SP 1.

    It appears to have some sort of bug that caused the Show Pictores option to get unchecked.

    I suggest that each image have an ALT so that we can see what's there. Otherwise, the threads look really strange.

    You may wish to do the same for graphics at your website so someone with a web reader visiting your site would hear about the counter in place of the multiple question marks.

    All the images in w3t have alt tags. Which ones are not showing for you?

    Howard, check you Internet Options in IE

    Get to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced Tab
    Check the firt box "Always expand ALT text for images"
    Specifies whether the image size should expand to fit all of the alternate text when the Show Pictures check box is cleared.

    As you can see if you look at the HTML source for the lounge, every single image has the ALT attribute, even all the smilies.

    FWIW

    I have no access to the count, that's why the ALT is all question marks.

    For example, all of the flags and the thingees next to the subject of each posting.

    If you uncheck Show Pictures and do a REfresh in IE, you can see this.
