For compatibility reasons in HTML, title cannot contain elements because
of the way it is parsed. It would be possible to do so in XHTML, but
then that would be another incompatibility between the 2 languages and
there is also limited usefulness in doing so anyway, since many of the
use cases for title are plain text. e.g. the window's title bar,
bookmarks, search results, etc.
