I do agree that it would in fact be poor design if the screen reader 
automatically started reading a "longdesc" without first prompting the 
user. I was picturing ( in my own mind) the screen reader automatically 
reading the "longdesc".

Thank you for your logical viewpoint./

/That aside, I still hold the position that "title" is the only  proper 
attribute to use with an "a" element ( ie; hypertext link ).
