Category Descriptions do not show as Title (1 post)

    Despite the fact is supposed to be a default, I'm finding I can't get Category Descriptions to show as title. I've entered description info for every category. According to this page, they should automatically show by default, > http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Template_Tags

    OK, so I force the issue, this is the call in my sidebar.php > wp_list_cats('sort_column=name&use_desc_for_title=1');

    It's added in the html as a title= inside the a tag, but not as the actual link text before the closing a tag.

    The codex page gives me the distinct impression it shouldn't be this way. Am I wrong about how it should work?

    The reason I want this is because I wish to custom order the Categories, and hope to do it by sorting by name (which will contain numbers), and then displaying the link list by Description.
