    help to position:fix a tooltip


    i would just like to say first of all, that i only use forums for help unless i've exacerbated all other forms of help as i am such a javascript noob! so please bear with my while i try to explain my problem...

    i've isolated the javascripts to this page > http://nang-nang.net/tumblr/blog/help.html
    in this example the plant image is using lightbox 2 and the bird.gif is using prototip2 to create a tooltip (that displays my latest tweet)

    (i should mention that these scripts will be used to pimp out my tumblr blog/portfolio http://bubblejam.tumblr.com eventually)

    the problem: i need the tooltip to stay put! i've managed to put the bird in a <div style="position:fixed..." etc so that's fine. but the tooltip isn't fixed and moves as the page scrolls down!

    can anyone take a look at what javascript i've got so far and fingers crossed there's a simple solution! thanks!!

    I did not look at your site(i just don't follow links)
    but i believe I found your problem . You had this
    in your other post ....

    <style type="text/javascript">
    #twittericon {
    position: fixed;

    it should be

    <style type="text/css">
    #twittericon {
    position: fixed;
