Maybe I'm missing something, but I think the behavior will be
exactly the same in browsers regardless of whether the title is on
a span that's a child of an a element or the title is directly on
the a element itself -- because it seems like the hover behavior
is really attached to the contained text, regardless of what
element contains it, and browsers doen't treat a title on an a
element any differently than they do a title on any other element.
