Can't put link or tags in a User-macro panel heading

My user macro uses this code to insert a panel:

<ac:macro ac:name="panel">
        <ac:parameter ac:name="titleBGColor">lightyellow</ac:parameter>
        <ac:parameter ac:name="borderStyle">solid</ac:parameter>
        <ac:parameter ac:name="borderColor">#6699CC</ac:parameter>
        <ac:parameter ac:name="borderWidth">1</ac:parameter>
        <ac:parameter ac:name="titleColor">#000000</ac:parameter>
       <ac:parameter ac:name="title">This is a link to "$!contentTitle" in the $spacetitle.</ac:parameter>

I'd like the "title" to contain a link to another page, but when I put in a link, it doesn't appear (nor does any of the text after it). The same thing occurses if I try to format the title text with <em> or <strong> tags.

Hi Shawn,

The title attribute only accepts text, so you can't include any HTML tags and expect that they will be processed.

If you really need to have a link, what I would recommend is to leave out the title completely and just simulate it with HTML in the rich-text-body.
