1) Script Title: Rich HTML Balloon Tooltip

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/balloontooltip.htm

3) Describe problem:
I just have started to use this tooltip and it's great. I was wondering if someone can help adding a delay when the tooltip is shown, instead when it's hidden. I've tried with the setTimeOut function with no results.

What I need is to show the tooltip after x seconds, but only if you don't do a mouseout event.

Thanks in advanced, and sorry if my English is no Ok

I`ve tried changing the onmouseover in the initalizetooltip function like this



all_links[i].onmouseover=function(e){
var evtobj=window.event? window.event : e;
var t = this;
setTimeout(function(){displayballoontip(t,evtobj);},3000);
}


but it only works in firefox, not in IE6. Any help?

I've made some advances, and it works exactly as I wanted in Firefox, but there is a javascript error in IE6 in the line marked in red

Any help will be apreciated
