Comment:This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements
for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the
use cases, please see 
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#title-and-alt
[http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#title-and-alt]
. Here is the proposal made there:

Support two new attributes, titledir=ltr|rtl|auto and altdir=ltr|rtl|auto that,
when present, specify the title and alt attributes' direction, respectively.
(The values should have the same meaning as for the dir attribute, including
the "auto" value's reliance on the autodirmethod's value.) In titledir's and
altdir's absence, respectively, title and alt attribute text will be displayed
in the element's computed direction, as should be stated in the specification.
