Missing text for links when editing layout.html

In this step, why did Kenneth leave out the text for the links below? Aren't they necessary so they show text for the links? For example, I've added "Log Out", "Log in" and "Register" between the opening "a href" and closing "/a" tags. Or am I missing something?



{% if current_user.is_authenticated %}
<a href="{{ url_for('logout') }}" class="icon-power" title="Log out">Log Out</a>
{% else %}
<a href="{{ url_for('login') }}" class="icon-power" title="Log in">Log in</a>
<a href="{{ url_for('register') }}" class="icon-profile" title="Register">Register </a>
 {% endif %}

They weren't provided in the designs I was given, for one thing. But, also, the links have a title attribute that contains the text of the link, so I didn't feel it was 100% necessary.
