TYME} By the OS?  So, alt and title attributes are not controlled the same?
Title attribute, at least, must be determined by browser, as IE5.01 and
NN6.0 display with different bg color on my Win98 OS.  Be nice if the title
attribute could be styled. I use title= a lot to convey additional
information or to define terms.  The lightyellow bg (NN6) is better
contrast; and, most content areas are white.
