I would like to know how to cite the sources of the images I want to place in my web site. I've taken all of my images from Wikipedia and all of them are public domain but some image owners would like credit for the image. I would like a way to give the proper attribution without cluttering my pages. A example of how I can do this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There a few ways you can accomplish this.

a) directly below the image put the '(c) name' text.
b) add a 'collection' of copyright holders at the bottom of your page
c) add the copyright holder to a tooltip, so its visible when holding the mouse over an image.
d) if the image is a thumbnail you can dispay it in the image popup window

I like the tool tip method. That seems to be the least intrusive. Thank you.
