On the subject of testing nested title attributes, it is my belief 
that the most specific (the deepest-nested) title should be 
displayed. That appears to be what actual browsers do. It seems quite 
fair to ask browser makers to give us a way to *optionally* view 
*all* titles having scope over the current selection.

A quickie but still usable test file is here: 
<http://www.joeclark.org/duelingtitles.html> It won't be up forever 
and it's crap in a lot of ways, but you can test all your own 
browsers with it. It's valid XHTML, but please, no more complaints 
about my using proper quotation marks. Those too are perfectly valid 
XHTML, and I don't particularly care if that carcinoma of the Web, 
Netscape 4, cannot interpret them.
