'set text of container' won't work in IE8

(I'm resubmitting this discussion as I wrote the wrong version of IE in my last post).

 

Hoping someone can help

 

At the moment I am using 'swap image' to change the text that appears within one container when I hover over different buttons.

 

I am using images of text rather than text itself because I have found that the 'set text of container' won't work when tested in IE8 (which is important for me). This makes the page much slower to load than it should be.

 

It works perfectly in Firefox and Safari but not in IE8.

 

Below is a link to my site page which shows how it should work (even though it's currently just images not text)

And below is the coding which appears when I set the page using 'set text of container'.

 

<div id="apDivthumb1"><img src="assets/client_feedback/fdb_thumb1.jpg" alt="thumnbail1" name="fdb_thumb1" width="43" height="43" id="fdb_thumb1" onmouseover="MM_setTextOfLayer('feedbacktbl','','&quot;Example of text I have written.&quot;')" /></div>

<div id="apDivthumb2"><img src="assets/client_feedback/fdb_thumb2.jpg" alt="thumbnail2" width="43" height="43" onmouseover="MM_setTextOfLayer('feedbacktbl','','&quot;Example of text I have written.&quot;')" /></div>   etc etc

 

I've taught myself Dreamweaver so am still fairly new to it and coding (although not new to website design) so please explain things in simple terms so that it's clear for me.

 

If anyone has the time to help me with this it would be really appreciated!!

 

Many thanks in advance, Michelle
