    If you use FireFox, there is likely a plugin for that. I don't what it might be though, but I'm SURE there is one.

    Maybe you could copy it from the "view source" or is it a picture or flash?

    You'll find the text in the page source.

    Right click on the site and pick 'View Source' then Ctrl + F to search for the text (in firefox, not sure on other browsers). or just scoll all the way through it [​IMG]

    While there are plugins such things are usually done with javascript, kill that (under an options menu for any browser).

    Firefox wise.
    5 extensions, general purpose really but if you know what you are doing even a little bit you can have fun.
    Adblock plus
    filterset g updater (for adblock plus)
    noscript: pick and choose what scripts you run.
    firebug: allows you to edit pages in real time, a debug tool really but a hell of a hacking tool.
    greasemonkey: I am recent convert, this can take what you make in firebug and spin it into a script you load each time. There are many scripts available for all sorts of sites (some of the imdb ones are great).

    Hey, it's nice to have options! It used to be just IE and Netscape! *shudder*
