Dreamweaver CS4: How to use alt and title tags on images?

I see how to add alt text to an image, which is to be displayed when using a browser with images disabled, but how do you add a title to the image? Firefox does not show the alt text when mousing over an image, but IE does although this supposedly isn't really correct according to standards.

How can I add title text to images as well as alt text?

Thanks in advance for any advice, I'm trying to get up to speed with Dreamweaver quickly, as I have a lot of pages that need to be updated.

Use code view.

@Sonjay:

I don't see an option for adding a title in code view unless it's typed in manually. I see where you can insert a title for a linked image, but not just a regular one.

There is a Title field for any link in the Properties Inspector at the bottom of your Document window.

Hi Jon:

Thanks for answering. I'm looking for a way to add title text to images that don't necessarily have links. I've found a way to do it by adding it directly to the code, which is fine, but it seems like DW should have included this, as there are times adding title text to an unlinked image is helpful to site visitors.
