DOM Tooltip allows developers to add customized tooltips to Web pages. The tooltips are controlled through style class definitions and respond to events such as "mouseover", and avoids possible collisions with form elements such as select boxes and screen edges. While originally designed to create context tooltips, it is also possible to create a wide variety of dynamic layers, such as embedded windows, context menus, and hidden blocks. Additional features include sticky tips, tooltip fading, lifetime, relative positioning, class assignments, width adjustments, mouse dragging, captions, directionality, offset adjustments, adjustable activate/deactivate delay times, snapping to grid, fate adjustment (hide or destroy), and references to created tips. It supports Mozilla/Netscape6+, IE 5.5+, IE on Mac, Safari, Konqueror, and Opera 7.

Release Notes: This release fixes edge detection in IE, a problem where tooltips disabled links and buttons on the page, and a wrapping problem in Opera and IE. The conflicting prototype function clone() has been removed. Changed to new fading library to improve support for Safari. A HOWTO reference document has been added. The license has changed to Apache 2.0.
Release Notes: A major code revision was made, resulting in a smaller and faster library. Fading is now more efficient and is handled by an external class. All tooltip information is now stored in a global hash rather than as DOM node attributes. Tooltip trailing (following mouse movements) is now significantly faster and follows the mouse perfectly on most computers.
Release Notes: This version fixes major crashes in IE 5.0 (it cannot use delays since setTimeout is buggy), fixes a hideList error in all browsers, and fixes a bug on example10.html when using a popup.
Release Notes: This version fixes a scroll offset problem when IE is in compatibility mode, and a problem where the select box detection nixed the element inside the tooltip.
