NS 4.x and IE 4/5/6 have this feature wherein the alt text of an image appears
as a tooltip when the mouse hovers over the image. Can this be done in Mozilla
also for 1.0?

(use the title attribute instead of alt)
the HTML spec says that alt text should only be displayed "when the element
cannot be rendered normally".  You want the title attribute which is used as
tooltips.
