I was following some discussion on Andy Clarke's blog a while ago and it
led me to Ben's work on the value-title design pattern. Awesome work Ben :)
In the interests of doing something pragmatic (but probably not that
useful in hindsight) I made a jquery plugin to stop the tooltips
appearing when you hover over any .dtstart, .dtend or .bday ABBR
elements which as far as I could gather was the reason the BBC stopped
Anyway there was a bit of discussion on strackoverflow and a clever chap
called Cristoph suggested using the VAR tag. I'm not entirely clear
whether it's semantically valid to use to store a datetime in the title
attribute but the spec states it's 'an instance of a variable'. Is that
geared towards marking up code rather than an arbritrary variable?
The thread on stackoverflow is here:
Cristoph's suggestion is at the bottom.
I thought it might be worth mentioning at any rate, even if the answer's no.
