    In short:
    Flashing title attribute popup when writing-mode set and AJAX makes HTTP
    request.


    I have a AJAX page that repeatedly fetches small amounts of information from
    a database until the user aborts it by clicking somewhere (or all data has
    been fatched).

    On the page there is a table with a very narrow heading (due to space
    limitations) and since the data in the column takes up just one charchter (Y
    or N) I did not want to waste space just because of the heading, so I used
    writing-mode:

    <div style="writing-mode:tb-rl;" title="Active">Act.</div>

    Now for the strange part. The title popup flashes on and of (while the mouse
    pointer is over it, per usual) each time the AJAX JavaScript makes a HTTP
    request. But it only happens for title attributes where writing-mode is also
    applied! Other title attributes show up normally without the flashing.

    Just wanted all bug collectors out there to know :)

    I forgot to mention that the AJAX JavaScript HTTP request loop is triggered by
    setTimeout("getData()", 10000);
