Derek Featherstone writes about how many accessibility techniques provide information that is hidden from most users in the article Contradictions in Accessibility - Hidden Information.
In the article, he mentions that I don’t use title attributes to provide information about the links in my Quicklinks section, instead making that information available to everybody, all the time. That is exactly my reason for doing it that way. When I first added the Quicklinks section, I used title attributes, but found myself having to mouse over each link to see what I had written about it. I also felt that it wasn’t obvious that there even was a title attribute for each link, so I decided to just put the info on the page.
