This is true. "alt" works only in Microwave Exploder, but "Title" works
similar in all Browsers IE, Firefox, Konqueror, Opera.
In HTML4, XHTML and maybe others is "alt" tag required.
It is useful in text Browsers (Links, Lynx) or in speech browsers
for Blind men.

Right method is to use both "alt" for alternate text AND "title" for POPUP.
HTML4 example: <img src="mem.png" alt="Memory graph" title="Memory">
