Hi,

I would have expected the code below to have changed the alt tags on the imgs however when I use firebug to look at the code I see that the alts remain unchaged.


<html>
      <head>
            <title>This is a test</title>
            <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
            <script type="text/javascript">
                  $('img').each(function(n) {
                        this.alt='This is an image['+n+'] with an id of '+this.id;
                  });
                  
            </script>
            </head>
            <body>
                  <img id="myImage" src="image.gif" alt="An image" class="someClass" title="This is an image" />
                  <img id="myImage2" src="image2.gif" alt="An image2" class="someClass2" title="This is an image2" />
            </body>
</html>

Here you go.
<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$('img').each(function(n) {
			$(this).attr('alt', 'This is an image['+n+'] with an id of '+this.id);
		});
	});
</script>
