Comment LC-2871
Commenter: mark.rogers@powermapper.com

Resolution status:

Example 2 on H33 shows the title attribute as the sole means of indicating link opens in new window.

Title on links is not well supported - especially on mobile user agents where it's hard to see a new tab/window has opened (so problem is more severe)

The HTML 5.1 draft says:
"Relying on the title attribute is currently discouraged as many user agents do not expose the attribute in an accessible manner as required by this specification"

Proposed Change:
Remove this example, since it conflicts with another spec, and it's hard to see many cases where this would pass the success criteria.
