In IE8's Standard mode the tooltip not positioned correctly especially on the icon image hover, cancel button hover and the image hover.

In Firefox if you hover the mouse over the images in your demo page it shows the tooltip correctly. Now you are moving your mouse from one image to another image most of the time the tooltip is not being displayed. The same problem occurs in Safari for Window 3.0.4 also. The problem in Opera also.

I haven't checked the code or css at the moment to know what is causing these problems
