Hey Jennifer, so that’s one article from a TPG employee saying don’t use the title attribute.

Here’s an article from another TPG employee saying DO use the title attribute ;) http://juicystudio.com/article/hidden-label-firefox-bug.php

I also disagree that the title attribute is bad and posted that comment on Steve’s article you linked to.
