yes, whatever ytou tell php to spit out it will - there is no gremlin or voodoo :) I get the alt text fine, I see it as the image loads and in the image properties. Usually my browser(s) won't show alt text unless the image doesn't actually load - are you getting mixed up with title text, which will show as the user focusses the mouse on an image/link?
