Hi,
just wondering why there's no way to set the title attribute of an "option" element (inside of a select).
Nobody needs it? It adds a very useful tooltip to the option element which is difficult to achieve otherwise..
I couldn't even find it in the 2.0 release.
Thanks for any information on this!

You are correct that the "title" attribute is valid HTML [1]. Can you
please file an issue at
,
and in the meantime, I'll investigate.

I've added you as an Observer to the project so you can file the issue.
