Changes report does not have <title> tags for action type images, so tips do not display
in many browsers
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MCHANGES-228
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MCHANGES-228
             Project: Maven 2.x Changes Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: changes.xml
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: SebbASF


The HTML generated for a changes report contains <alt> tags for the images, but it also
needs <title> tags otherwise the hover text does not appear in many browsers.

Sample of current output:

{code}
<tr class="b"><td><img src="images/fix.gif" alt="fix"></td>
{code}

How it should look:

{code}
<tr class="b"><td><img src="images/fix.gif" alt="fix" title="fix"></td>
{code}

I've created a sample HTML page to make it easy to test using a browser:

http://people.apache.org/~sebb/maven/alt_title.html

Only IE displays the alt text; FF, Opera and Chrome don't.

All 4 browsers display the title text.

According to http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_IMG.asp

Tip: The alt attribute is meant to be used as an alternative text if the image is not available,
not as a mouse-over text. To show a mouse-over text on images or image-maps, use the title
attribute, like this: <img src="angry.gif" alt="Angry face" title="Angry face" />
