New line in bubble Help Text of visual force page

Using the pageBlockSectionItem is there a means to maitain the formatting (introduce the new line within the string - I used several things like \n, br(), <br/> nothing seems working even from controller) of help text. For instance here I have muti line Help text defining the values of picklist. Like


A - Use this for 

B - Use this for

C - Use this for.


How can I maintain this format in the Help Bubble Text of visual force page. The standard help is not suffice here as the help text exceeding 255 characters. 


Hi Kvin,

You can even use standard HTMl along with Visual force to achieve your requirement.


You can use Divs  to show help text and there you can easily introduce line feeds. Also use of some javascript will enable you tpo give the visual effect of help test , i.e. the div show / disappears on the focus and lost focus event of a certain page element.
