Alt tags aren't meant to show on your screen. They are only meant to show if
images are not showing. If you want the "tooltip" effect, title tags are the
way to go. But you'll still need alt tags for a description of your image.

> 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
> over the image instead.
