    New Tooltips version in need of review.

    Hello everyone.

    I'm in the process of rewriting my tooltips (this is the link to original version) and would like to have everyone's opinion if I'm heading in the right direction.
    I decided to ditch the "following the mouse" feature (at least for now) to include the following:
    - support of title attribute for backward compatibility
    - ability to use predefined HTML blocks for tooltips and tooltip text frames (nothing to do with HTML frames)
    - expanded persistence options.
    The preview of the new version can be found here

    Sadly enough I have bug report. In Opera 7 the links that are supposed to display a tooltip totally disappear when hovered and no tooltip appears. Opera flags no javascript errors.

    Very odd. If there is:
    before before link text after after

    After hovering the link there is:
    before before after after

    Never cared for Opera support, but will check when I have time... Thanks for the heads-up though.

    Oh. I can understand if you don't care about if the pop-ups work in Opera or not (they do on the old page btw) but surely making a page unusable in unsupported browsers is taking it a little to far?

    Unfortunately Opera pretends to be able to do more than it can (promising more than you can deliver is hardly a recipe for success). Right now the script tests for method support before proceeding to modify the page, I guess for the release version I would have to check specifically for Opera and leave it alone. From what you described the problem seems to be the Opera’s handling of regular expresions…
