I have the following Tool Tip Text code which I have copied from a freeware site It seems work okay until you start to scroll down the web page, and for some reason the tool tip text appears half way up the page until eventually it disappears off the top of the browser. Can anyway tell me why this is happening and a possible solution.

Many Thanks

Why not use the built in tooltip functionality - with a <a href tag this is the title

That way you don't have a javascript hack to do something the browser does by default - less room for errors like this.

I was looking for something a little more complex. However, this maybe the best option. Many Thanks
