Could anyone please tell me what the main differance is between the 'alt'
and the 'title' attribute.

Is it that 'alt' is compatable with older (text) browsers and 'title' is
just there to give a pic, link whatever a title?????

From what I can gather the 'title' attribute can be used in style sheets....

Which should I use and when? Do I need to have both of them??
