1) Tool Tip II:

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/dhtmltooltip2.htm

3) Describe problem: I would like to be able to include html in the tip box so I can change the color of the text. Or if that is not possible, how do have write the tip in 2 short paragraph instead of one continuous paragraph.

I expect that should work.

Thanks Daniel.

The script is grabbing the tool tip from a field in a database. So in the tempalge ddrivetip(' ') appears, I can only place the field heading of from the database containning the tool tip. Thus, I am trying to find a away where I can write the tool tip in the database so when the information is brougt to the screen, it appears as two paragraphs. I tried to enter my tool tip in the database as paragraph1<p>paragraph2. However, that did not work.

not sure what to tell you then; also, that floating <p> is strange. You'd need, instead, open and close tags for all paragraphs-- <p>...</p><p>...</p>

I wonder if the script has an option to allow html. Currently, any html is being ignored. (maybe my database is not displaying the html.)

It does allow HTML. You just need to code it correctly, aka close all the tags before finishing with the value. Example:

ddrivetip('<p>lorem ipsum</p><p>et donor</p>')
