This won't work for at least two reasons

This is one of the reasons. Mailman replaces things like < and > with
&lt; and &gt; to avoid cross site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The main reason this won't work is that the footer appears in a
text/plain message part, so tags will not be interpreted as HTML
anyway, but you can just put something like

To unsubscribe visit

in msg_footer and many MUAs will make it a clickable link anyway. Note
that you also need the unsubconfirm=1 which corresponds to the "Yes, I
really want to unsubscribe" checkbox.
