Title area does not have alt tag

Postby mmesarch1 » Thu Aug 10, 2006 4:05 pm

As I understand it the text in the editable titlegraphic area is transformed into an image with the proper font. Shouldn't there be an alt tag be created in this process to comply with the standards. It is also removing text that would be picked up by search engines...now that it is graphic that text is lost. I generally include the main site name in the doctitle editable area anyways so it might be a unnecessary comment.

The 'titlegraphic' is actually replaced with a flash element containing the text of what was replaced, which happens at the time the page is viewed by the client's browser.

This technique is referred to as sIFR.

Search engines still see the <h1>text</h1>, and people without javascript or flash will get the standard <h1>text</h1>. The technique is an accessible way to apply custom font styling to any element on a web page.

The region name 'titlegraphic' was kept for backwards compatibility with older templates being upgraded.

I have a question about the title area too. On one page, I have an image up there and it used to show up. Now it doesn't show up in Firefox ( or IE(6.0) anymore... even stranger, it shows up in the 64bit version of IE (6.0 64-bit edition). It shows up in Dreamweaver too. The image is in the source, but even the web developer tools in my firefox doesn't see it.

Stylesheet Overrides

Postby rcrisler1 » Thu Aug 17, 2006 11:13 am

Erin -

Any stylesheet overrides must be approved by the WDN prior to deployment.

Your overriding "globalstyle.css" must be removed.

I didn't mean to override any stylesheets. What did I do and how do I fix it?

Try updating your templatedepedents. It seems to me you have the old body ID problem.
