I really did mean the alt attribute, I didn't try turning images off, just
I suppose that if mobile browsers fix Bug 3 *and* fall back to the title
attribute in the absence of an alt attribute then it would be OK to use
title instead of alt, but I'm confused -- is falling back to title a Good
Thing that people want browsers to implement, or is it just a quirk that
some legacy browser had?
