I'd hope that a "tooltip" would be just one way of presenting, for
example, the "title" attribute of an anchor.  Please also bear in mind
that different operating systems treat these quite differently.

For example, RiscOS can display tool tips as balloons near the pointer,
or in a separate window.  It would make sense to me for title text to be
displayed in that window.
