Are the pages you wish to display the tooltips dynamically generated? If so it's arguably better to just have the server dynamically add the relevant "title" (aka tooltip) attributes with its content retrieved from a database. That's in fact how the tooltips on the forum category pages (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=23) operate. Using Ajax to make a request to the server whenever the user moves his mouse over a link is a waste of resources IMO, especially if you have lots of links on your pages.

Well, the title attribute is merely a HTML attribute, something like:


<a href="http://google.com" title="Click here to visit Google">Google</a>

It's static, though if your pages are dynamically generated, you can have the server dynamically output the contents of the title attribute, from say a database. That's how the tooltip here in the forums are created.
