The documentation if pretty sketchy but the suggested implementation is that if you move your mouse over an acronym a tool-tip will pop up with the full phrase.In that case the "title" attribute contains the full spelling. Basically it's like an alt attribute for acronyms.
ALT attributes should never trigger tooltips, because then it would encourage use that is not for alternate text. IE's behavior is that TITLE triggers tooltips on links. TITLE should probably trigger tooltips for everything, including links, acronyms, images, etc.
Let me clarify: I didn't mean that ALT attributes should trigger tooltips. I apologize for the confusion. Besides the ALT attribute is only usable on IMG and AREA while everything except like 5 elements don't have a TITLE attribute.
Setting all current Open/Normal to M4.
