There are some on-the-fly advertisement methods that use JavaScript to
achieve this effect. You can extend titles, abbr and acronym using the more
appealing "Nice Titles" (do a Web search, I think it's from some guys in
MIT). You can extend the markup perhaps and do some hacking on Nice Titles
if you want something richer, but bear in mind that Nice Titles is based on
CSS and JavaScript, so browser compatibility would be limited.
