Here is a formated tooltipA Tooltip is any additional text that appears in a small box when you move the mouse over some special text.  This is usually done by default for elements which use the title or alt attribute.   This example uses a dummy hypertext link. which uses Cascading Style Sheets with a dummy anchor tag instead of the title or alt attribute.
