1) Script Title: Rich HTML Balloon Tooltip

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

3) Describe problem: I am new to this forum but have used DD for some years and think it is a fantastic resource. This particular script is great but I am having a small problem which I hope someone can help me resolve. I have experimented exhaustively and not found a solution.

The problem is that when the tooltip appears below the link the vertical position is perfect, ie, an arrows depth from the link itself. When the tooltip appears above the link (when that link is close to the bottom edge of the browser) the tooltip almost completely covers the link. This happens in Firefox, IE, Safari and Chrome. In Opera it behaves perfectly! To view what is happening see - http://www.madaboutjewellery.com/acatalog/bead_charms.html

If anyone can offer any pointers to make this work in those other browsers I would be really grateful.

I have solved the problem.

I think it was a design issue. There was an anchor link that I think was interfereing with the script. Having removed it all seems to be well.
