That's because macros are single line objects. Your first example, when
expanded, will generate:

  #+BEGIN_HTML\n<div class="move">\n<a href="#" onclick="toggleContainer('Home', '2');"> 'foo' </a>\n</div>\n#+END_HTML

with literal "\n".

Macros are a simple answer to simple problems. If you want to construct
something more elaborate, I highly suggest to use Babel.
