We need a UA-specific hotkey for displaying the content of the title attribute
in the same separate (yellow) popup window as for the mouseover operation.

HTML5 spec definitely should be more precise + complete here.

In Lynx the "title" content could be displayed e.g. in Lynx status area on request.
