Am I missing something here or do you just mean the ALT tags?? If you don't want it to show up, just don't provide one in the img tag ... though that seems like an obvious answer so I probably am missing something.
No, not alt - this is for textual tags, like h1. I was using the content of the attribute in the CSS via attr(X). CSS doesn't have a way to access the actual text enclosed by the h1 tags.
This might work, but I'm not sure how to reset the title onmouseout
Thanks for the tip, but it didn't work. Once the title attribute was removed, the entire h1 disappeared.
However, I ended up trying it with id instead of title and that seems to work much better. It also makes a little more sense in terms of the attribute purposes. You're also limited by the id attribute being unique, but I don't think that will be a problem most of the time. In addition, I had used id as the CSS selector, but I found that a class selector works better.
With some further tweaking I was able to make the CSS abstract enough that it can apply to any text element by simply adding "shadow" as a class subclass or subclass. I plan to get an example and the code together; I can post it here if anyone's interested.
