The text after the vertical bar is a caption, it appears in the wiki page, and 
can contain styles, colors, links, etc.

PmWiki adds the string in quotes in both alt= and title= attributes of the 
image tag. You can see the HTML source code of the page.

Browsers should display the alt text when the image cannot be displayed, and 
the title text in a tooltip box/bubble when the mouse cursor is positioned 
over the image. (In the past, Internet Explorer used the alt text for both, 
but this behavior is not standard.)
