I installed this last night and everything looked great, but I noticed today that when the text link you hover over is near the bottom of the browser window it doesn't display properly. I have a flash movie on the page and the text is below that. In a small browser window the tool tip looks like it is cut off by the movie instead of displaying on top of it. I have other div's on the page as well so I don't know if that's part of the problem.

Update: I just had a look at the "Overlapping Content Link" because it sounded like it would do what I want, but even the Demo #1 on that page displays underneath the Flash banner. So maybe this is an inherient problem with these scripts and Flash.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Andrew

Yep this is a issue that plagues DHTML scripts in general- namely, that it will be hidden underneath certain objects such as Flash or form fields when the two come in contact. There's no easy way around this, unfortunately.

I haven't tried this with your tooltip script yet, but I found this FAQ at the url below that describes this as a problem with Flash not with dhtml. There is a work around by placing the "wmode" parameter on both the <object> and the <embed> tag.
