it's even a bit tricker than that. I'll give you an example.

Context:
	A picture with a graffiti in French “J'aime les filles”, a Web site 
with the content in English.

<img
	src="/graffiti.jpg"
	alt="graffiti on a brick wall written J'aime les filles"/>


How a vocal browser is supposed to read that. :) or should I write this?

<img
	src="/graffiti.jpg"
	alt="graffiti on a brick wall written in French: 'I love girls' "/>

for titlelang what's happenning if you need more than one title in 
different languages.
