I realized (after I sent the post) that I was testing with image-based 
navigation, so the <href> element was around an image.  When I tried a text 
link, IE 5.01 did render the title attribute as a tool tip.  So it appears 
that IE has the properties of the image override the properties of the 
<href>.  Good to know.

It seems that for an href wrapped around an image, IE uses the following 

img title, img alt, href title

Mozilla's precedence appears to be:

img title, href title (and it never renders the img alt attribute as a tool 

And Netscape 4.77 only renders the img alt attribute as a tool tip.
