  • bugzilla:20712: Anchor tag surrounding a thumbnail's img tag no longer has a title attribute.

  • Sometimes the caption is much more detailed than the description on the file description page (example: Fault-tolerant system). Yet when the user clicks the file to see a larger size, they see the file description page's text, and not the caption with the context of the article. We have to find a better way to handle this (also related: caption / description / alt text).
