Thanks to Kyle Weems for <>.

Turns out that this passage from the WG decision:

> Implementation
> It was stated that the longdesc feature was implemented multiple times successfully. Cited were Opera, Firefox (which apparently subsequently removed this feature), Dreamweaver, and XStandard. Newer versions of IE may produce a tooltip based on this information under certain circumstances. No criteria was provided for the adjective "successfully".

...should have mentioned that Firefox' "View Image Info" *does* display 
the longdesc link (as plain text, though).
