I suggest the advice should not be restricted to the img element, the same
issue is evident on any element the title attribute is used to present content.
It should also not be restricted to the a case where some content is not
displayed (as in the image case). input device independent access to title
attribute content is equally problematic whether an image is displayed or not.
