    Use the title attribute for tooltips. Title works in images, links, divs, etc. <BR><BR>As an aside, you should NOT be using alt text for tooltips. Alt text is meant to provide a description of the image for people who are surfing with images turned off or who can&#039;t see the images. Like blind people using screen readers. In many cases a well written alt tag lends itself to being a tooltip also, but you have to keep it&#039;s intended use in mind when you write it.
