    Question Cool DHTML Tooltip - Quotation Mark Problem

    1) Script Title: Cool DHTML Tooltip

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...tmltooltip.htm

    3) Describe problem:

    The instructions say any apostrophes (') need to be escaped (\'), but what about quotation marks (")? They seem to be closing the onMouseover attribute (onMouseover="ddrivetip('The use of "ironic quotes" is often unnecessary')"), yet escaping out the quotes doesn't seem to fix the problem (onMouseover="ddrivetip('The use of \"ironic quotes\" is often unnecessary')"). Unfortunately, the quotes I'm using are definitely necessary. Is there a method of escaping the quote marks, or even escaping all of the ddrivetip values by putting them in a javascript file or something?

    Instead of escaping the double quotes, try changing those double quotes to ". Try the following for example:

    Code:
    onMouseover="ddrivetip('The use of "ironic quotes" is often unnecessary')")
    Hope this helps.

    Added Later: Instead of using " use & #34; (without the space) to make it valid HTML.
