The Literal control doesn't have any visual appearance on a Web Form but is used to insert literal text into a Web Form. For example if you examine the HTML dump of a page with the following code in it
<asp:Literal ID="lit1" runat="server">some text</asp:Literal>
you will notice that only the text is rendered on the page - that is why there is no tooltip. If you want to have a tooltip on the text, you need to wrap it in some container - DIV, or P for example,  with the corresponding "title" property.

you could try something like this:

<td>
            <table style="height: 100%;">
                  <tr>
                        <td class="PageTitle" colspan="2">
                              <div title="tooltip text goes here"<asp:Literal ID="lblPageTitle" Text="Main page" runat="server"/></div>
                        </td>
                  </tr>
            </table>
            <div class="BottomBorder">
                        &nbsp;</div>
      </td>

thank you . this worked. i also find that changing the tag to a label did the trick


<asp:Label ID="lblPageTitle" Text="Main page" runat="server" ToolTip="tooltip text goes here"></asp:Label>
