Strangely enough, a discussion on this subject at CSS Discuss has
highlighted that this appears to be a bug in NS6. The solution that most
gave was to use the title="" attribute as well as alt="". It doesn't show
alternative text in the page, but it enables a tooltip when the cursor moves
over the image instead.
