      You can't uisng the core Skin Object.
      I created my own Title skin object some years ago for this (withouit the span in it), I can add a release to github if you want.

      BTW AFAIK having a span inside an H4 is not a symantic error in HTML 5.

          Maybe you can use a simple JQuery to remove that span tags, will this be enough?
