Description

18 years ago
The 'title' attribute of the HTML INS and DEL elements is not displayed as a 
tooltip. This is probably a content sink or parser problem. I can see no reason
why the JavaScript tooltip code would not work.

INS and DEL are special elements, in that they can appear almost anywhere in the
markup (IIRC, they are, in SGML terms, included elements). We *do* currently
recognise INS and DEL elements, since they get styled appropriately.

cc'ing various relevant people. Tested with Win32 build 2000071215.

Ben, is this up your alley? Even if not I'm guessing you might know where to 
send it. Thanks.

Need to check this, recent changes mean this may have got itself fixed as if by
magic...

The testcase works now.  I believe the problem was solved by bug 62160.  Looks
good...
