Titles for everything!

Dive Into Mark: In brief: All hail the Benevolent Goat Masters!

I put in my two cents about supporting the title attribute to allow authors to specify tooltips for everything (but especially images, links, and form elements). This is such a fundamental usability feature, I didn’t realize how much it mattered to me until I tried Safari and didn’t get them.

I didn’t realise that all HTML elements could contain a title attribute. From now on, titles for everything! I try to provide titles for all my image and link elements, where appropriate, but now I will try providing titles in even more places, such as code blocks, and possibly weblog entries and quotes. I’m drunk with the possibilities!
