« SVG Attribute reference home

The xlink:title attribute is used to describe the meaning of a link or resource in a human-readable fashion, along the same lines as the xlink:role or xlink:arcrole attribute. A value is optional; if a value is supplied, it shall contain a string that describes the resource. In general it is preferable to use a <title> child element rather than a xlink:title attribute.
