Adobe Pagemill Alt Tags... in WebDesign & Review Tips & Tricks

"Not sure how to do ALT tags .... but would like to learn. Can I do this from within PageMill 2.0?"

With the graphic selected,
Choose "Show Inspector" from the Window Menu
You'll see a window for "Alternate Label"
Key in your text there.

While doing research, or just gathering info at a high rate of speed, I almost always turn the graphics off. Several of the web survey agents, as well as many webmasters who have access to detailed logs are showing from 25 to 37% of the surfers are running with graphics off to avoid banner advertising and animated gifs which can crash the browser.

If you get your own logs look for "Unrequested" and that indicates graphics were turned off.

Also... if you have a background graphic, it doesn't come down either! This can sometimes be disasterous when combined with colored text, etc.

Take care.
