Mozilla should support line breaks in IMG title atribute
Mozilla should support line breaks in TITLE atributes. At now Opera ignores it, IE supports well, and Mozilla shows blind signs. Title is used to write description for image. Sometime this description can be very long (like in galleries) and title is very effective, non-scriptting, way make it. I'm not shure if it's a bug so i decided to put this as enhancement...
This also affects TITLE attributes in links. According to HTML 4.01, "User agents should interpret attribute values as follows: * Replace character entities with characters, * Ignore line feeds, * Replace each carriage return or tab with a single space." So, IE does again things that are not according to the specification, but it tries to deliver the intended output. Mozilla displays special characters instead, which is definitely wrong. In my opinion, the browser should work according to the specs, and reflow the text if it is too long.
