* ''Webcomic/AGirlAndHerFed'' began using these for extra jokes and occasional commentary roughly around when ArtEvolution started to hit the comic.

* ''Webcomic/TheEnd'' has started running stories in the alt text. Chapter 15 told the story of a studio team making a movie tangentally similar to the chapter. Chapter 16 does something similar to old pulp sci-fi novels.
--> Our intrepid heroes have scarcely begun to explore when their way is barred by the one of the Cosmic Mind-Thief's evil obstacles - the first of many, no doubt! "Look out, Savage! The Mind-Thief has constructed an id fence to bar our way! One touch, and your consciousness will be overtaken by your innermost fears!" "Not to worry, Smart! I still have the Cowl of Solitude that Science-Commander Warner gave me! It will isolate my thoughts in a psychic echo chamber-" "-and short out the id fence, overloading and destroying the psi-crystal that powers it! Of course! You're sure putting that doctorate in Psychophysics to good use, old friend!" [[note]]None of that is accurate at all to the actual comic[[/note]]



* ''Webcomic/FurryExperience'' adds alt-text starting on Thursday 17 December 2009, though it's done about half the time, while the rest go alt-text-less. It's usually included to add something without the characters BreakingTheFourthWall.



* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'':
** Author David Morgan-Mar argues against them in [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1640.html this strip,]] a parody of xkcd. While using it anyway, because he's parodying ''xkcd'', and wants to get it right.
** His [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1458.html previous xkcd parody]] featured a TakeThat against alt text ''[[HypocriticalHumor in the]] alt text'', which read "Some text that's too long to display when you mouseover it in Firefox, thus forcing you to check the source code to see it". Which, of course, shows up as "Some text that's too long to display when you mouseover it in Firefox, thus forcing you to..."
* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' initially didn't utilize alt text as bonus info, but progressed to use alt text and later on to simultaneously using different ALT and TITLE text, making some people having to not only hover their mouse over the image but also look up the alt text in the source of the page.

* On the website for ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'', alt text appears when you position the cursor over the logo. This includes some running gags ("[[ComicBook/SupermanAtEarthsEnd I AM A MAN! (punch)]]"), call-backs to his reviews ("[[ComicBook/TheNewGuardians Snowflame feels no pain]]"), and even some SelfDeprecation ("My claim to fame: being punched by WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd once").

** The ''Blog/WhatIf'' spin-off blog initially didn't have any, although this changed soon after. Initially all the tooltips were simple descriptions of the images, but somewhere between [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/19/ "Tie Vote"]] and [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/28/ "Steak Drop"]], they, too, became extra punchlines.

Alt text is inserted by defining the "title=" attribute of the image in the webpage's html or xhtml document. The ''actual'' "alt=" attribute [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alt_attribute has other purposes]], though older versions of Internet Explorer would still display it as a tooltip, leading many authors to create alt text only functional in it.

* ''Webcomic/WeAreTheWyrecats'' uses alt-texts mainly as a means for the author to provide additional commentary or make dry quips.
