I have a problem with some Czech letters like ลก when displaying them in titles (web page title or a href title).

No, the tooltip is a system or browser setting and isn't subject to style sheets.

Changing the rollover font of links is relatively simple to implement:

<style type="text/css">
a:{font-family:arial;}
a:hover{font-family:helvetica;}
</style>

<a href="">Click Here</a>

This code doesn't work. I'm using IE 5.5.  The font I see in the tooltip is always the same.

If you get into some JS, it's possible:

But not just through CSS.

I misunderstood what you were refering to.  The code I posted changes the font-family of the text comprised by the link itself.  You're talking about the browser's rendering of the ALT property, something that the browser controls.  The primary usage of the ALT property is within the IMG tag to provide an alternative for browsers that are not displaying images.

You can imitate the effect of this "tooltip" rollover with some dhtml javascript - you'll want to set the ALT tags to "" and can float a table with your text relative to the cursor, making it visible when the focus is on the relevant link.

I think we've all misunderstood because the questions is miscategorized. The problem here is one of character encoding, not of CSS or JS or something like that.

Do you have some sample code? Are you using directly keystroked Czech characters or are you using numeric Unicode Entity References?
