8)  YAG - Yet Another Gallery for jQuery. [*] Version 1.0 (20090131)
    |*] http://www.setaou.net/yag.php
    "En passant la souris sur le titre, celui-ci s'étend pour afficher 
une description étendue (rappatriée depuis l'URL fournie par le 
paramètre longdesc)."
    Demo code from the site:
            <a href="media/yag-demo/IMG_0782.jpg" >
            <img src="media/yag-demo/th-IMG_0782.jpg"
             alt="Picture 1" title="Picture 1" 
             longdesc="media/yag-demo/desc1.txt" /></a>

9) However, to intepret @longdesc as some kind of fullsize image, seems 
quite widespread - including in recent scripting solutions:
   [*] 
http://www.janinedalton.com/blog/archives/2009/jquery-adding-slimbox-lightbox-effect-to-galleria/
   [*] http://finnrudolph.de/ImageFlow/Installation
   At least this proves that a) it works cross browser b) authors *do* 
get that it is an URL.
