Hi - right, as it states in the title.

I have a gallery that has been built and now I am trying the get the "title" curser-pop up to appear, it seems to refuse when I add it to either the <a> or <img> tags that I add it to (my use of the <img> is in conjunction with <a> in this case, I have tried every combination of where to house the "title" tag).

Here is a link to my example - please note that this is the live version that does not have the tags in use - I am experimenting with change on my local devserver.
(the links that I cannot get to behave are the gallery images that serve as links to other pages in the main content - I know the links are not working at the moment either - also as you can see the title tags work in the main navigation...)

In case it proves too much a pain to find the relevant files and code from the live site (and I think it will be), here is the ripped out code from the files that control the img and anchors from the home page.

<div id="primaryContent">
<div class="innerpad">
<div id="Content">
<% if URLSegment = home %>
<h2>architecture building design making</h2>
<div style="float:left;width:380px;font-size: 14px;line-height: 1.5;color: #AAA;" class="galleryDescription">
<% else %>

   <div class="content-gal-div"> <h2>$Title</h2>
<% if AlbumTitle %>
   <% control CurrentAlbum %>
   <p class="galleryDescription">$Description</p>
   <% end_control %>
   <% end_if %><% end_if %>


            <div id="galleria">
               <% control GalleryItems %>
                     <div >

                <% if ImageLink %><a id="ViewLink-$ID" rel="$RelAttr" class="$ClassAttr" title="$Caption" href="$ImageLink" >
                  <% else %>
                   <a href="#" title="$Title" ><% end_if %>
                   <img src="$ThumbnailURL" alt="$Caption" title="$Title" /> </a>
               <% end_control %>

Many thanks

Shameless bump - still no joy...

Okay - so I have noticed on a few sites that have the same function (of a gallery type main content) seem to be missing this function. Is it actually the case that SS is over-writing the tags of the IMGs that are in the gallery/main content and rendering the "title=" section of the <img> and <a> tags useless as I STILL cannot get them to appear when the mouse id hovering...
