Summary of Issue: Example 4, image need alt text instead of title
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In example n°4, since the input element uses an image, the img element need an alt text, and not a title. 

<input  type="image"  src="stuff.gif"  title="Do stuff"  onclick="return doStuff();" />

Proposed Change:

title="Do stuff"


alt="Do stuff"

replace "Note that a title attribute [...]" by "Note that an alt attribute [...]"
