Responsive image description, unwanted gaps

  • # March 13, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Trying to make a simple, gracefully degrading “hover-this-thing-and-see-some-sort-of-description-thing” (If there is a name for these things let me know).

    However, I keep getting some gaps below each item which, obviously, I don’t really want.

    @Dennis, just add `display: block;` to the `img` tag.. http://codepen.io/ChrisPlz/pen/Dbtvo

    I believe you can also use `vertical-align: bottom;`

    There are number of solutions depending on what is being hovered so you don’t need all that extra mark-up.

    It looks like you want an ‘overlay’ rather than a ‘tooltip’.

    @ChrisP – Nice catch, it’s way to easy to get code blind!

    @Paulie_D – Why I never thought of using the figure element is beyond me, definately the right way to go in this case!

    The beauty of the figure/figcaption is that the text is readable by screen readers as well although the [alt] tag would work just as well.
