the ALT tag gives non-graphical browsers text to display instead. also,
if you break the connection before the image is finished downloading, the
text is displayed along with the broken image icon.

hope that helps-

Tab hi,

I've found a typo in the command below:

<IMG SCR="2_mb3.jpg" ALT="2_mb3" HEIGHT=150 WIDTH=100 BORDER=0></A>

It should be <IMG SRC= instead of IMG SCR.

I am not familiar with the ALT= command. What does ALT="2_mb3" do? If
2_mb3 is an image, doesn't it need a suffix such as .gif, .jpeg?
