CSS image captions

I have only recently discovered this, but it is something I thought was worth noting down on my blog for my future reference if anything!

Easy CSS image captions using :after and the attr attribute.


<div class="caption" title="Hello World!">    
    <img src="http://fillmurray.com/400/400" />    


    content: attr(title);
    position: absolute;
    top: 20px;
    left: 20px;
    color: #fff;
    font-weight: bold;
    background: rgba(111, 111, 111, .3);
    padding: 20px;
    display: none;

    display: block;


aww sad Bill Murray!
