Description Olathe 2005-05-11 05:17:29 UTC
[http://www.yahoo.com Yahoo] shows in the alt text as Title: http://www.yahoo.com/; Address: http://www.yahoo.com.  
The Title text should be simply Yahoo, as that is the wiki markup link title.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-05-12 08:16:33 UTC
The title attribute shows the destination of the link, not the link text, *becase* the link text is 
shown inline and the destination is not. If it just mirrored the link text, there wouldn't be any 
point.
Comment 2 Olathe 2005-05-15 05:04:43 UTC
Perhaps the best option is to just delete the "Title:" line for external weblinks.  If duplicating the inline text has no point, then there is 
certainly no point in duplicating the "Address:" line right below it and improperly naming it "Title:".

Reopening, since the fix for bug 524 in r76127 doesn't seem to address this case.

[http://www.yahoo.com/ Yahoo] produces <a rel="nofollow" class="external text" href="http://www.yahoo.com/">Yahoo</a>

No alt text at all.
