Ie Issue
I'm using this script and it's turned out pretty neat. I'm having one issue, however. While firefox displays the tooltips which "hug" the text (tired - can't think of the correct term) to tooltip extends the rest of the width of the page in IE.

For example -

I'm not sure where the problem lies as I copied the code exactly from one of the example pages (and it works fine on the example page?)

It's probably something simple which I'm overlooking but any light on the subject would be nice. (=

Form Elements in IE
I am using your FANTASTIC script on my site. I have a very complex form with many elements, and in IE 6, when the tooltip is moved over an intruding element, the script does its job and hides the element, but upon moving the tooltip off the element, the element stays hidden.

Any ideas?

If you need to see it in action the url is, you will need to do a search in order to have an item display a tooltip.

Re: HTMLArea and DOMTT
This problem is likely solved in 0.7.1. Previous versions were using a prototype on the top level Object that was conflicting with many other third party libraries. This custom prototype has been removed.

Object errors
I have been creating a site with a number of images on giving the status of a process. A typical line in the page looks like:


<a href="migration.cgi?rm=siteDetails&site_location_id=1081"

onmouseover="return makeTrue(domTT_activate(this, event, 'caption', 'Migration Scheduling', 'content', 'This site is due to migrate on 26/05/2005', 'trail', true));">

<img src="" />



This works in Firefox and IE 6.0, but gives me an object error in IE 5.5. Any clues where to look would be appreciated.

I have installed and use DOMTT for use

at my site

It's a blog hosting site, and I am very pleased with the results of DOMTT so far.

I have noticed just two things.

With htmlArea, DOMTT conflicts with it.

In I.E. it doesnt allow for mouse based selection

to bold/edit/change once typed. And

certain pop-ups for htmlArea don't work.

In Firefox it doesnt allow for any mouse-based editing. But works fine when posting.

It's most likely a conflict between htmlArea's js and DOMTT js.

Either way, it can be easily overcome by just using html-based editing.

Just thought I would let it known in case it might help find a resolution later on.

On the other hand, I have searched many hours to find a script to allow the multi-functional tooltips that DOMTT offers...

Great job :)

This was a bug in Opera 7.0x. You just need to upgrade Opera.

crashes in Opera 7.02
For some reason Opera 7.02 crashes when I use caption on the tooltips. Anyone know why?
