Tooltip missing in IE 8

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I write
   <a title=3D"..."><span>...</span></a>

Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385 does *not* show the tooltip
(i.e. title=3D"...") for

=95 HTML 4 Transitional - Standards mode

But IE 8 does show the tooltip for

=95 HTML 4 Strict - Standards mode

=95 HTML 4 Transitional - Quirks mode

Is there an explanation?
