I know the difference between alt="" and title="", and this text makes sense as both. But as it's the _only_ alt="" attribute on the whole page, no title="" is placed anywhere and MSIE + NN4 display an alt="" as a tooltipp, it looks, like the author of that page doesn't know this, and wanted a tooltipp with the alt="".
