The title is limited to just plain text (the same
limitation the alt attribute gives)

From the param definition in XHTML2 :
"param elements specify a set of values that may be
required to process the object data by an object
handler at run-time"

Doesn't it mean params only give info to use for the
object - not info about the object ?

Thanks in advance,
