From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010928 BuildID: 2001092808 In the URL http://store.apple.com/020-1209971/WebObjects/swedenstore/ there is a table that looks like this: Pict | Pict ------------ Pict | Pict The horizontal and vertical lines is an image (1 pixel wide) inside a <td>. Mozilla displays the alt text "Image" instead of the image (GIF). However, during loading (I have a slow connection :-) one can see that the image is indeed displayed as intended, but gets changed to the text "Image" near the end of the load. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to http://store.apple.com/020-1209971/WebObjects/swedenstore/ 2.Watch the text "Image" on gray backround instead of a thin line.
Typing http://store.apple.com/Catalog/se/Images/hp_graypixel.gif into the url bar (that's the src for the image) results in a Not Found message. It looks like it's just a broken img src, and thus Mozilla is displaying the alt text (alt=Image), as intended. As I understand it this is an accessibility feature, not a bug. Over to layout (unsure where this belongs, but definitely not HTML Tables) for confirmation.

Yes, the missing image is causing the alt text to appear, but we then do NOT honor the width constrants on the image. This is all covered elsewhere - bug 41924 has loads of information on how Alt text should be handled. Marking a dup of that for lack of a better alternative. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 41924 ***
