Would it be reasonabe to request that the menu_html module be merged into the menu_attributes module?
Of course it's reasonable but I can't do anything in this regard until someone posts a patch here that I can review.
Here's a patch I that makes use of the code in menu_html module and provides a checkbox to enable html in menu link titles.
Is there a chance to have that patch commited? It seems to be working pretty stable on my site.
