i guess the reason i put ratingX.gif in the 'alt' attribute is cus i'm 
one of those "Dont put descriptive text in the alt attribute(i've seen 
it abused way to many times)" kinda guys.. but i see how it could be 
beneficial here.. so you're basically saying to make the title and alt 
attrib's the same ?
