It's easy to forget that, although you are embedding JavaScript in the
onmouseover and onmouseout attributes of the element, the content of
those attributes is still technically HTML, so the single and double
quotes as well as the tag angle brackets inside the attribute should
probably be the HTML entities (&quot; &apos; &lt; and &gt;) instead of
the literal characters. This avoids the issue with nesting and
escaping quotes across three languages (PHP -> HTML -> Javascript).

Of course, when testing this, my first attempt worked in Firefox,
Opera, Safari and Chrome but failed in IE (version 8). (Go figure)

<span class="see"
onmouseout="this.innerHTML=&apos;an angel&apos;"
an angel</span>

So then I tried a mixed approach and it seems to work in all of them:

<span class="see"
onmouseout="this.innerHTML='an angel'"
an angel</span>
