image "alt" change to "title"

image "alt" change to "title"

Short, concise description of the idea
In the image options box, the area to enter alternate text should appear in html as "title" not "alt" in order to show up on all browsers

Full description of the idea
Currently, when you insert an image in the RTE, the text box allowing you to insert alternate text that appears on rollover is set to appear in the HTML coding as img alt ="". This only shows up in certain browsers, including IE. However, it doesn't appear on rollover in Firefox or Google Chrome, etc. I discovered that by inserting title="" instead of the alt, the text will appear in these browsers too on rollover, as well as IE. I have to insert each manually currently, and I would like it if the RTE image insert box were changed so that the "alternate text" box inserts a "title" instead of an "alt" into the coding.

An ordered list of benefits
  • - "alt," to my knowledge only shows rollover text in IE; "title" shows up in IE, Firefox, and Chrome as tested by me
    - changing this would only require replacing the img alt="" that is inserted into the image HTML with title="" instead
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I do not know how the RTE image editor is set up, so obviously this would be an area for the web developers to consider. However, it seems fairly easy and requires a small change to the actual HTML created.
