Sounds like LaTeX2HTML should use the same text for
*both* of these attributes.

There is no coding for this at present.
LaTeX2HTML was written before there ever was a 'title'

However, the Perl coding required would be minimal
  -- just add a few lines to a subroutine ---
since the value has been worked-out already for 'ALT'.
