Can you have html tags embedded in the html title attribute?
I am pulling a field from a database (HardCoverRetailPrice) and displaying it in the title attribute, but the field has <strike> in it and when I mouseover, the title attribute displays this:

<strike>$55.00</strike>
$41.25 hardcover

I would like the strikethrough mark to display instead of <strike>
