Tooltip Line Break

When tooltips are displayed, line breaks seem to be based on simple line wrap within the window.  I want to control the location of line breaks in a tooltip. Is this possible using something simple; using some <br> like command in the tooltip text?

Here's some html to illustrate...

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Cookie Tester</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<INPUT type="button" value="ClickOnMe" name="ClickMe"
            title="I would like to be able to explicitly control where this line breaks.  It seems to break based on the width of the window.  But, I need to be able to control breaks with a <br> like method" >
</BODY>
</HTML>

I know there are javascript utilities available that will give me control over tooltips.  If my above request is not possible, please recommend a simple utility.

archrajan, my initial question was whether there was a way to force a line break in a tooltip directly by embedding some <br> or \n like command in the text.  You didn't answer that question.  But, judging by the fact that you immediately sent me links to js tooltip utilities, can I assume that the "direct embed" method is not possible?

BTW, thanks for links!
