I am new to using front page, and want text to appear when the mouse cursor moves over the image. This works fine in Microsoft Internet explorer, but in netscape I do not get the text.  

Thanks

If you mean the little 'message bubble' that appears with MSIE that displays the ALT tag contents then this is not implemented in Netscape.

ICD's answer was right - the 'little text message' displays the ALT text for any image (for which ALT text is defined).  The effect is coded into Internet Explorer, but not into Netscape (if version 4.0 has this capability, it's new).

In other words, it's nothing to do with your HTML page, but is the result of the browser application itself, and there's really nothing you can do in Front Page to get Netscape to do what it isn't programmed to do.

If having mouse-over text is important to you, then you'll need to employ interactive multimedia, such as Macromedia Shockwave or a Java applet, rather than HTML.

Did you publish your page yet? When you provide the URL, maybe we can look at the source-code directly!(If you didn't, try to put the text after ALT= between quotes!)Mylène

Did you notice that the buttons at the left in MS did not give your ALT= text?Guess the problem with Netscape is that it doesn't translate all of the FrontPage-webbot properties.The "stand-alone"images (the logo and text at the top) display the popup-text in Netscape 4.01!!!!!!!!Mylène
