Best Practices: Anchor Element Title Attributes




Habits die hard. In my early web life I liked to look at the differences between browsers. One from the 4.0 days was internet explorers usage of title attributes on anchor elements to provide a tool tip for users before clicking on a link.


Lately I have been finding myself exploring what I believe our my own best practices when it comes to the web. Among them is the desire to make sure that all HTML anchor elements have a title attribute. I believe integrating this in to my workflow will increase the user experience, overall polish and possibly have a positive impact of search engine optimization and ADA compliance.

This also forces another look at the relevance of the linked web page.
