Title:
Expose Tag Count Tooltip Option to Customize Style User Interface, Make New CSS Class for Tag Count

Area:
tags, styles

Summary:
Based on a thread in the Style System community (http://style-system.dreamwidth.org/102224.html?thread=826448#cmt826448) I'm positing that we expose the sidebar tag count tooltip option to the Customize Style User Interface (basically, to put an option to use it on this page: http://www.dreamwidth.org/customize/options?group=modules) and to make the option a checkbox choice with the label "display tag count only as a tooltip". To be clear, this was originally user ninetydegree's idea, but I was given her permission to post it here if she didn't submit it first herself. :)

Description:
Right now as a DW user you may, for aesthetic or other reasons, not want to expose the tag count to users in your sidebar (a 'tag count' being how a sidebar tag might say, for example, "0 uses" or "20 uses" right after it). Rather than hide it via clumsy CSS ('clumsy' being, um, the only CSS guidance I could offer in that thread, given that there is no specific CSS class for the tag count) the idea is to expose the "display tag count only as a tooltip" in the Customize Style/Modules user interface to give users that option. Right now they can only access it by creating a custom theme layer and coding it in via DW's s2 programming language.

I'd also like to suggest that we have a separate CSS class for sidebar tag counts so we can style them however we want (this is the part of the suggestion I think DW designers will benefit from the most - but exposing the tooltip option also sounds like awesome sauce to me).

Title:
Change "Expand" alt text on cut tag icon to "Collapse"

Area:
accessibility, images

Summary:
Change the alt text on the right-pointing arrow on a cut tag from "Expand" to "Collapse" once the user has clicked on the tag or arrow and expanded the cut tag.

Description:
I browse the site with images off, and sometimes I get confused if I've expanded a cut tag or not because the alt text for the cut tag icon reads "Expand" no matter what state the cut tag is in. If the alt text is changed to "Collapse" when the cut tag is expanded, it will hopefully improve accessibility for people who browse the site without images.

Possible drawbacks: I'm not actually sure how this would work in a screenreader.
