Re: Available title indication via css

Hi Bim,
Don’t only think of people with disabilities. Imagine, You find an
abbreviation on a website, You don’t understand: If the abbreviation is
visually perceivable as titled, You will hover with your mouse and get the
meaning of the abbreviation as a browser functionality. If the
TITLE-attribute wasn’t styled, You would probably not try to hover to get
information. The titled abbreviation just looks like any other textelement.
Styling would help You, if You are sighted and can use the mouse. Even if
You need a magnification software, You benefit of the visual indication.
If You need a screen reader, the information You get, depends on Your
settings and not on the styling. But this is an other issue.
