How can I use a carriage return in a HTML tooltip?

I'm currently adding verbose tooltips to our site, and I'd like (without having to resort to a whizz-bang jQuery plugin, I know there are many!) to use carriage returns to format the tooltip.

To add the tip I'm using the

title
attribute. I've looked around the usual sites and using the basic template of:

<a title='Tool?Tip?On?New?Line'>link with tip</a>


I've tried replacing the
?
with:


  • <br />

  • &013; / &#13;

  • \r\n

  • Environment.NewLine
    (I'm using C#)



None of the above works. Is it possible?

Answer

It's so simple you'll kick yourself... just press enter!

<a title='Tool
Tip
On
New
Line'>link with tip</a>

Firefox won't display multi-line tooltips at all though - it will replace the newlines with nothing.
