Just a moment ago I wanted to send a link to the latest XKCD comic through Windows Live! Messenger. I sent it just well, along with a comment, but the next second I was suddenly sharing the picture (in messenger), and the tooltip text was underneath it in a way I hadn't seen before.

So... WTF? How did this happen? Is XKCD website special somehow? Or can I make my website like that too with some special tags or something? I didn't see anything standing out in the markup.

Added: (Open picture for a bigger view) alt text

Shouldn't it be Backward Read I Think Engineers Highway? :P – mickburkejnr Dec 17 '10 at 9:57
@mickburkejnr - Nope. Because in this case the order of the lines is what is important (and backwards), not the order of words. – Vilx- Dec 17 '10 at 10:38
