I am trying to create a navigation effect similar to http://www.SimpleBits.com
They seem to place HTML in their navigation elements.
The problem is that the Navigation Label seems to insist on sanitizing the text entered and as a result when I put my HTML in the Navigation Label it outputs the escaped codes rather then what I am intending when I display $MenuTitle.
Is there a different variable that will display the value without substituting what I entered?

I was able to work around this by going into /sapphire/core/model/SiteTree.php, line 65 and change the MenuTitle attribute from Varchar(100) which does not seem to allow HTML characters to HTMLVarchar(100) which works like a charm.
Any chance we could open a discussion about making this a permanent change?
If you think about it the MenuTitle is meant to be displayed within the confines of an HTML page so being able to include HTML tags (although a bit unorthodox) should be permitted. If a person needs to put in a special character they can utilize the HTML escape code for that.

How about adding a new variable to the CMS/db?
like a $SubTitle or something...
You could then create you navigation html in the templates - where it belongs imho - with $MenuTitle and $SubTitle...

So if I am understanding what you are suggesting correctly I should extend the model in a similar manner as is done in the second tutorial and place the code in there?

Have you tried in the relevant *.ss template file, using .RAW e.g.
It might well do what you need...

Ok, so is there any easy way to get html in MenuTitle without changing SiteTree or adding additional field?
