It's documented here:


I just added a link to that from here:


It may be other places, but it seems to be ignored in searches.

I don't think so.  @alt is alternative content ("this attribute  
specifies alternate text"), whereas @title is description of that  
content ("This attribute offers advisory information about the element  
for which it is set."), so @alt should be preferred for textual  
properties (e.g. entry-title).
