[thelist] are <acronym>, <abbr>, and alt/title attributes indexed by search engines?

For a long time I've had several <acronym> tags in my online portfolio. 
Now that I think about it, I think I originally put them in there mainly 
for the benefit of search engines, so that I could include both an 
acronym and the spelled out words. Will this even work? Do search 
engines index the text included in <acronym> and <abbr> tags, and/or in 
alt and title attributes?
