           Summary: HTML5 should give examples for how to present @title
                    when the user can't use a pointing device

HTML5 suggests that user agents may present @title or other caption information
without requiring use of a pointing device, and are encouraged to do so. But it
doesn't give examples of how this could be done. For the case of missing
images, it seems like the title could be shown inline, but with some text to
distinguish it from alt. For example:

<img src=broken-link.jpg title="Picture I took yesterday."> ==> "Caption:
Picture I took yesterday."

I'm not sure how to do it in the case of a visual UA when the image is not
missing. The typical UI for @title is that it's shown as a tooltip on hover. I
cant think of a keyboard-driven way offhand.
