Hah! Do you like the title? It’s a bit long, but this was an attempt to save you some time. I am hoping I captured enough keywords from all of the searches I did that you managed to find this page. Soh Tanaka is a talented web designer and developer and thankfully he took the time out to write CSS On-Hover Image Captions.
I used his code to successfully implement captions over images using only CSS for EduBasics: Home of Multiplication Hip Hop product page. In all it took about 15 minutes to update the stylesheet, html and upload it to the server. At the end of the day I hope this saved you some time and provided the code you needed.
A little due diligence; here are the Google queries that led me to Soh’s article – CSS On-Hover Image Captions. This list is a history of two hours of fumbling around on the internet. The queries are in order #1 being the last query that led me to the light. What search did you perform to get here? Comment and let me know.
