1) Script Title: Cool DHTML Tooltip

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

3) Describe problem:
I've successfullly implemented the tooltip script on my website through FF. However, in IE7, it does not show up. Any ideas on why this may be? You can see my problem on http://dejavuapparel.info

I've had a quick look at your code and I would suggest that you put it through a validator.

Try this one : http://validator.w3.org/

You have numerous errors, you have 2 <body> and <head> tags, there should only be one of each.

These errors will be affecting how the browsers treat your page, it will work in some but not others.

Thanks. I don't think I can do anything about that unfortunately. I have a couple of other scripts on there which also require a "head" and a "body". The site builder does not actually let you have access to the "head" so this is the workaround.

It is normally possible to put all scripts in the head and all the subsequent HTML in the body. Have a good look at whether this possible.

As I said though, there are other errors which you need to sort out and using a validator is the best way to do this.

Until your script can pass validation it is difficult to help you.
