It seems the other thread that queenpictoria was deleted while I was writing my reply, so I'll post it here.

Thank you for your attention on my behalf.
There is a lot of almost mean criticism about HTML, and it only
stands because of the continued understanding of newer, better
code. The contempt for HTML resembles typical arrogance
which can come from a new generation of anything. I don't see
how one can really understand code without knowing HTML.
CSS is new for me. I have been practicing HTML now for four
years and am self-taught. My work is better with each page.
My question involves the "alt tags" that come after the pictures.
In CSS, where do these alt tags come into play, since they do
offer added opportunity for keywords involved in the picture,
not to mention the title of a picture should the image URL fail.
Will I continue to use the image tags, or is there a better way?
With HTML, as heavy and complicated as it is, there are many
places inside the code to legally place keywords, and the "alt
tags" is a very good one. What does CSS offer in its place?
How does one do image "alt tags" in CSS?
The short answer is that HTML and CSS have different purposes. HTML's purpose is to give structure to and enhance the meaning of the content of a document; while the purpose of CSS is to add presentational information to style such documents.
