Fix to make IE9 display tooltips when setting the title attribute on an element. #503

If we add a title element as a child of the element we want to apply a title attr to, then tooltips in IE9 work.

Do you want the fall through? Then you would end up having both the wrapping "a" tag with a title and a child title element.

I created the same code, before I saw yours, but without the fall-through and tested on IE7, IE8, IE9, FF latest and chrome latest.

                case "title":
                    var hl = $("title");                                                
                    var val = R._g.doc.createTextNode(value);
                case "href":  

I wanted to change the original behavior as little as possible. However, if other browsers work with <title> as a child element, rather than setting the title attribute then I guess there's no need for it to fall-through.
