Alt Tags On HTML Items With Background Images

Hi All,

Inside HTML items we are adding a background image. How could we put alt tags on these background images without making them into graphics.

Is it acceptable to use Extended,

and “alt”(without the quotes) as the name. Or is that doing something outside of the norm.

Thank for your help,

Christian

There is no alt attribute for a background image. Likewise, there is
no alt attribute for a DIV. If you have text in the background image,
and you want to have it be a part of the real HTML, you should insert
that text as regular HTML text within the same box where you have
applied the background image. You can use text styling to force that
text to be hidden (this is precisely how the Image Replacement Action
works, by the way) by using a stupid-large negative text-indent and
overflow:hidden on the parent element.
