Hi Steve,

I have applied your change suggestions and merged the branch. The
changes should show in the next build of the spec (probably tomorrow).

Please note that I have only removed the paragraphs from the W3C HTML
spec that were not acceptable.
I have not made any word changes to the other paragraphs.

Please open a new bug with suggested wording if you'd like the
consensus position of the WG on use of the title attribute reinforced
with stronger words.

Thanks,
Silvia.
