link attribute "title" displays very wrong on mouseover when there are lengthy "title" entries
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011019 BuildID: 2001101909 On certain sites, such as tomshardware.com which uses a lengthy title attribute on its links, when you mouse over the link, the text that should display cleanly in a yellow window instead sprawls all over the place (off-screen in this case), and shows characters it shouldn't. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.tomshardware.com 2. Mouse over the first article link (currently "The Storage Champions: ATA/100 IDE RAID Controllers From AMI, HighPoint And Promise") 3. Note the yellow box which appears, and will more than likely scroll offscreen showing characters which clearly should not display. Expected Results: I imagine there should be a standard way that lengthy TITLE attributes are word-wrapped so that they are still a usable feature when viewed in Mozilla. Perhaps a line width should be set, and Mozilla should pop up with a yellow box instead of simply one long line, which will invariably scroll offscreen, such as in this example. The HTML that causes this is, in my example, as follows: <A HREF="/storage/01q4/011023/index.html" TITLE="October 23, 2001 - The Storage Champions: ATA/100 IDE RAID Controllers From AMI, HighPoint And Promise After looking at the RAID abilities of Windows 2000, it's time to compare hardware RAID controllers at more than $150 for IDE. Currently there are three popular manufacturers for these types of controllers: Ami/LSI Logic, HighPoint and Promise. All of them have similar features, but we take a look at the differences" TARGET="_top">The Storage Champions: ATA/100 IDE RAID Controllers From AMI, HighPoint And Promise</A> Note the lengthy TITLE, and also the alternate characters it employs.
