The thing about abbreviations is, the expanded text replaces the  
shortened form, rather than supplementing it. So I'd guess your  
example wouldn't work unless the text 'the point under my finger  
right now' could be replaced by '22.31119;+89.86145' and still make  
sense when read in its larger context.

<span> is probably a safer element to use for encoding lat/long
