Well, I have noticed that users do not know where to find things on SharePoint. I have been a fan of tool tips as I believe it is a great way to help users understand what they will find behind the link.
WSS does not provide us the ability to add a title so that the default tool tip would show the title. Even if it did, like MOSS allows, the standard tool tip is not very obvious or well designed.
I decided to look at how we could add tool tips for WSS that gives us the flexibility in how they are shown. Simple Tip was the best way that I could see doing this.
With this solution we are able to identify which links will have a tool tip, what the tool tip will say and the look of the tool tip. As you will see in the example, http://www.bitsofsharepoint.com/ExamplePoint/SimpleTip/default.aspx
that I have added tool tips to the Quick Launch to show how you can make it more intuitive for the user to find the right information.
Here is the code and webpart that you can add to any page.
