--- that's a good question. Since the semantics of an "a" element are
for the href, but GEO doesn't make sense as a URI, i would say that it
would default to the visible text, just as if you had:

<span title="45.5140800;-73.6111000" class="geo">Montréal, Quebec, Canada</span>

There isn't a compelling argument to take the @title over the node
value, "Montréal, Quebec, Canada"

does that make sense?
