Displaying Image ALT tag text while waiting for image to load in IE browser

Product: ALL
Version: ALL
Platform: ALL

Default browser settings for Netscape show the ALT tag text before the full image is loaded but IE does not. For those with a slow connection it may be useful to have the ALT tag text displayed while you wait for your browser to finish downloading the image.

To see the ALT tag text in IE (v5.5), select Tools -> Internet Options and then select the Advanced tab. Scroll down to the Multimedia section and check the "Show image download placeholders" box.
