alt="Physical Education | Government" I would like these two things to be on top of each other instead of beside each other. What do I have to typ it in as to have it like that. JF

The easyiest way to to run a CSS and in there state the size of your ALT bounding box. Make it small enough so that the words are FORCED to be ontop of each other.

For an example try this script...

just need the "width" of the box to be just bigger than your longest word.

I am sure there are other ways as well, but this is simple.

alt="Physical Education | Government"That doesn't seem to be a good choice of alternative text. When you view the document with images disabled, does that replacement make sense?


I would like these two things to be on top of each other instead of beside each other.Which two things? 'Physical Education' and 'Government'?


What do I have to typ it in as to have it like that.Nothing, because you can't. The value of the alt attribute is a simple string replacement used when the image cannot be shown. You cannot format it beyond the text formatting properties in CSS.
