Flags use title attribute which is MUCH better then alt, since unlike alt titles are displayed on mouseover.

As far as avatars go, what purpose would the alt tag serve there?

And the ALT tag shows on mouseover in IE, while title only shows in Firefox (thats how it used to be at least, I could be wrong now) - But mainly it was for validation purposes.



That mostly correct, IE will also show the title tag, which is why I have been using it throughout the forum. The reason why I don't use both tags is because usage of both will inflate page sizes with no apparent benefit other then syntactic sugar.
