Tool Tip Solution for Quick Launch or any other Link List

Welcome to this example where you can add Tool Tips to any links.  I have chosen to focus on the Quick Launch as this is an area where many users what each of these links will provide them when they click on them.

To me, tool tips are a perfect way to help users understand what they will be navigating to.  In WSS tool tips are not available and so I found an opportunity to create something that could be used for others to add this feature.

This solution is now much simpler to use.  Version 2.0 no longer takes knowing the links you want to have a tool tip and the tip you want to provide.  Now you just identify the link by its name.

Mouseover any of the links on the left hand Quick Launch to see the tool tip.

Tool tip has been incorporated into the solution, but you find details here if you want to learn more: http://code.google.com/p/jquery-simpletip/

I will be evaluating version 2 after it comes out of beta as it has many more features.
