inheritance example for title content

inheritance example for title

in the first 2 cases:
this file when displayed in Opera demonstrates inheritance, obeying  
rules somewhat similar to CSS, that is the closest (ancestor) title  
content takes precedence in the tooltip.

This seems reasonable as the careful author may then recognise  
whether more or less titles would be helpful. The more absolute  
neglect of inheritance, perhaps fails, as the absence is less  

does anyone have comments or further examples?
or an alternative proposal?

Third case:

regarding the xlink case, inheritance, and indeed title content is  
ignored in preference to the xlink:title content.

It's not clear to me that this is 'correct' or appropriate, it seems  
to me at least that given that links are meant to be clearly  
separated, that the cursor doesn't change, then the user may well  
benefit from further descriptions of the type of resource to be  
found, as described visually and textually in each part, with for  
instance in this case the bowl having the xlink:title content and the  
fruit presenting aspects described in the titles.
my apologies if this third part is not well described.

what do others think?
