    Default Alt tags not showing

    I recently updated my website:
    www.whiterabbitdesigns.co.uk but now find that some of the images do not show the decriptive text when I point the mouse to them. I've checked the source code and the alt text is there, so am puzzled as to why it hasn't come through onto the website.
    Has also happened with www.shepherdshutbreaks.co.uk
    Has any-one experienced this problem and knows the answer, please?

    I'm afraid that most recent browser versions are looking for a "title" tag instead of a "alt" tag.
    At the moment BV doesn't have this for images.

    Solution:

    right click the image. Select HTML and then paste, in the Inside Tag, the following:

    title="your image alt text or title"

    Preview to see how it works.
