On my page, the tool tip is using the wrong font. There seems to be no obvious way to select the font, and I would have thought that it picked it up from the link or the current css font. However, it seems to be selecting it from two css steps behind, which in my case is the body, which has a class of its own.
The body class is set to font-family: "Edwardian Script ITC";
font-size: 240%;
color: #FFF;
background-color: #000;
while the link text before (and after) the addition of a tool tip is set to
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: large;
color: #FFF;
It shows in the body font which looks rather silly.
Perhaps it might be better not to set a font for the body?

It does indeed pick up the text size from the body element. I removed the text size attribute from the body and it displays in another font and at a more sensible size in a default font - looks like Times Roman, It would be better if it was possible to specify the font and size within the behaviour. It seems to take its padding and margin from the container that it is within, and that can lead to problems. I am using CSS to style my <td> tags, giving them rounded corners and large margins and paddings. The tooltip seems to be picking this up.
Still a problem. Will advise if I solve it.
Unless you solve it for me?
