Will you be applying JavaScript to make the title appear on keyboard focus? In most browsers that does not happen automatically.

Also, be aware that those hover states with the title attribute can be very difficult or impossible for users at high magnification. Is there a workaround for this use case? In fact, title attribute hover states at high magnification levels can under certain circumstances make a site very difficult to use, because if every point of mouse hover or keyboard focus causes a very large title pop up to appear, how does the zooming user see the rest of the page?
