I've noted my observations on your observations

re: your notes in the Wiki, could you explain how

(<span class="geo">lat:<span class="latitude">45.5140800</span>; 
long <span class="longitude">-73.6111000</span></span>)

is more user friendly than

title="45.5140800;-73.6111000" ?

I see two things there:

1. changing the problem i.e., intended visible readable text content

2. "45.5140800" and "-73.6111000" as text values is no more human
readable and listenable than as "45.5140800;-73.6111000" title value.
