Hi
I've to have a page with select tag with 5 options, whenever i place mouse on the option i need to display some text as tooltip, each tooltip is of about 100 characters so i woulds like to have a multiline tooltip.

the problem is i am working on mozilla and so all the other things which r working on IE are shown as softkeys in mozilla instead of the new line... pls let me know how to solve this problem in mozilla

i have tried using javascript + DHTMl but the tooltip is hidden from view by the dropdown menu.

please provide me with some good code examples also

Thanks in advance

Can someone help! I'm running into a similar issue with Netscape. The tooltip gets truncated after 75 characters. Is there a work around for this problem?

thanks,
Sri

you try using a DHTML tooltip?

Something like http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/dhtmltooltip2.htm
