    Well if it is important it really should be put in a *content*

    <div class="pixbox">
    <img src="some.gif" alt="gif image">
    photo by: Jon Q. Public
    </div>

    But if you want a mouse over you don't need JavaScript, but just put it
    into the TITLE attribute:

    <img src="some.gif" alt="gif image" title="photo by: Jon Q. Public">

    Then do as Joanathan suggested and put it in a title attribute.
    See the example he posted.

    Is that not what all earthling minds do as they age? So why the "but"?

    "I might not be old but my mind is slow" and "I might be old but my mind
    is fast" are much more likely sentences.

    And now you're /almost/ writing poetry.

    So the mouseover's fine

    Irony may be lost on dorayme 'cause her mind's like a steel trap: tense
    and bipolar.

    Ah, a subtlety! You are not so slow after all! In Australia, we have an
    expression that goes "There's no flies on you" which is meant as a
    compliment to a person's mental competence.

    Make sure you wear a crash helmet to preserve it!

    (btb, I rode bikes for almost half a lifetime and started when there
    were helmet laws in Victoria. When I made my first trip to NSW which did
    not have such law at that time, I enjoyed a dash across the Harbour
    Bridge and along Parramatta Rd to Parramatta without a helmet and
    thoroughly enjoyed it. But that was a one off.)

    Victoria is a state in Australia. All states in Australia, afaik, now
    require helmets for all motorcyclists. They even require pushbike
    cyclists on the public roads to wear appropriate helmets. It is quite a
    nannily governed country! Still, the helmet laws for motorcycles have
    had very good outcomes and though I think they are bad law, I approve of
    them for their simplicity.
