img alt text is not shown as a tooltip
A tooltip with the img alt text is not shown on linux nb 2001050121.
The reason for this is that the HTML 4.0 spec fairly explicitly says that ALT text is _not_ to be shown in tooltips. Use the TITLE attribute if you want a tooltip. Use ALT for real honest-to-God alternate text. This is not a bug. This is the intended behavior. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 25537 ***

Verified, although I'm pretty sure we have a more detailed bug on it with more debate (or maybe I'm thinking of 1994).
