Alt attribute function is to provide an ALTernative information about an
image that is not loaded. Title is *always* shown. In this case when user
places his pointer over the <a> a tooltip is shown with title description.
This is useful cause we must not trust in user's perception of our icons.

PD:sorry for my english ;-)

Better use that code then what?

&gt; , it gives a little more information:
&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;test.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;
title=&quot;Link will
open in new
&gt; window&quot;&gt;Some link &lt;img
&gt; src=&quot;winicon.gif&quot; alt=&quot;Link will open in new

No it doesn't, it gives the same information three times.
