   <p>Given an element (e.g. the element designated by the mouse
   cursor), if the element, or one of its ancestors, has a <code
   title="attr-title">title</code> attribute, and the nearest such
   attribute has a value that is not the empty string, it is expected
   that the user agent will expose the contents of that attribute as a

   of the caret and with zero width for the purposes of the CSS
