This is a longstanding bug in Tails.
The title attribute has *never* semantically meant anything on anything but
the <abbr> element in microformats parsing (e.g. see hCard parsing).
Last time I checked, Tails incorrectly looks at the title attribute on all
elements instead of just on <abbr> - I think at this point it is due to lack
of maintenance than anything else. An innocent mistake that was just never

X2V has properly supported <abbr title> (and not title attribute in general)
for quite some time. Tails must use its own implementation or perhaps it
uses a *really* old version of X2V?
