HTML Validator: Attribute alt not allowed

Question by Guest | 2018-02-26 at 16:29

When I try to validate my website with an HTML Validator, I get the following error:

Attribute alt not allowed on element a at this point

In principle, I have only provided a link with a title, which is displayed on a mouseover:

<a href="http://www.example.com" alt="Text">Link Text</a>

What can I do to prevent this error? I have always done that this way.

Just take the title attribute instead of the old attribute.

So in your example:

<a href="http://www.example.com" title="Text">Link Text</a>

In the browser, the title attribute is also displayed on a mouseover and the validator will no longer complain.
