Jump to: navigation, search

The title text is an HTML attribute Randall puts on almost every xkcd image which normally adds something tangentially relevant to the topic of the comic. In some of the early comics, the title text was used to explain the joke. (Such as 5: Blown apart) It can be accessed via hovering the mouse pointer over the image on the main site or clicking the Alt Text button on the mobile site. Many users incorrectly refer to it as "Alt text" rather than "Title text":
