My mistake. I was using Firefox 2 here, not 3. I don't have a Firefox 3 handy to try at the moment.

I suppose. But it doesn't help those of us who like to find things with Ctrl-F. Reminds me of the old saying that I just now made up: "A word is worth a thousand pictures." Probably not a huge issue with this particular page, though. Maybe somebody will someday make a browser with a Ctrl-F that searches the alt tags, too. (Or maybe somebody has already done it.)
