Re: Available title indication via css

For WCAG standards I don't discriminate, when I use title attribute, as far
as I expand in first instance: Everybody can find the meaning in first
instance on the page. My point is that is not enough for usability.

And the metaproblem stays: Is it a discrimination to help some people with
functionality, which is not available general. My opinion: It is no
discrimination. Nobody would forbid graphic organigramms for instance,
because their complex informations about relations can textually only be
explained too verbously.

If you provide content only perceivable by one user group, you're
discriminating/disadvantaging other user groups.
