      This page:

      Has these menu items:

      Country Roads Cyclists
      ERT - HOME
      test

      The title does not pop for "ERT - HOME" in IE 8.
      It does in FF 12.

      Reason? Solution?

      Thanks,
      -Mike

          I am missing what you mean.
          Here is the menu HTML:
          <li style="font-size: 100%; margin-left: 15px; margin-top: 15px"><a
          href='http://www.crcyclists.org/' target="_blank" title="Country Roads
          Cyclists">
          <strong>Country Roads Cyclists</strong></a></li>

          <li style="font-size: 100%; margin-left: 15px; margin-top: 15px"><a
          href='http://EpicRoadTrips.us' target="_blank" title="Mike Breiding's
          Epic Road Trips">
          <strong>ERT - HOME</strong></a></li>
          </ul>

          Neither one will pop the title in IE now.
          Thanks,

              Got it!

              The <strong>-element after the <a> prevents the title from showing.

              This works:
              <li style="font-size: 100%; margin-left: 15px; margin-top:
              15px"><strong><a href="http://www.crcyclists.org/" target="_blank"

                  I agree, IE 8 is buggy. I have stuck to 7 for that reason, but I just
                  found one machine with 8 on it - and it does display all your titles. So
                  it's an even worse problem, a non-reproducible one. As it's only one
                  browser and a rather unimportant feature, I'd just live with it.

                    I just thought you had beaten me to it and I was looking at a fixed site
                    - not so:

                    This is the source I see:
                    <li style="font-size: 100%; margin-left: 15px; margin-top: 15px"><a
                    href="http://www.crcyclists.org/" target="_blank" title="Country Roads
                    Cyclists">
                    <strong>Country Roads Cyclists</strong></a></li>

                    And my IE 8 does display all three titles when hovering the mouse.
