    How does an image "have text"? Are you sure of this?

    i'm really not sure what u are asking, but i'll try to reply. if u're trying to query a page by the text that is inside a .gif or .jpg, use the alt attribute on the img tag to encode the text.

    you can't do it. text in a jpeg file is part of the graphic image. you would need to do some kind of pattern recognition algorithm.

    Yeah, that kind of thing used to be called OCR, for Optical Character Recognition. Caere Corp., of Los Gatos, California, used to be a big seller of that, but you can get it anywhere.

    Recognizing characters in a graphic image must be difficult enough that several companies sprung up with applications that did just that. Not for the faint of heart!
