This is possible, but not with CSS. You want to look at using DOM
scripting (JavaScript, essentially), to add that information.

You script (not sure exactly what it would look like - there are others
on the list who could help) would traverse your document looking for <a>
tags where the href contained ".pdf". When it finds one, it would add
the title attribute to the tag.
