So, I was playing around with Google Web Toolkit hyperlinks, and I couldn't find a way to add an alt attribute to a Hyperlink. I just didn't seen anything there in the spec.

JavaDoc for Google Web Toolkit (GWT) Hyperlink Widget

For now, I've added a GWT-EXT ToolTip to the HyperLink, and it pretty much servers the same purpose. I was just wondering if this was the standard way of setting the alt attribute on a Google Web Toolkit Hyperlink, or if there was an easier way.

Panel panel = new Panel();

Image image = new Image("images/silk/flag_green_s.png");
image.addClickHandler(new ClickHandler() {
public void onClick(ClickEvent event) {

ToolTip tip1 = new ToolTip();
tip1.setHtml("Question " + i);
