This line of code works great to generate a tooltip except when the field 'item_description' contains a new line or \n.

<TD onmouseover= "Tip('<?php echo $record->getField('item_description', 0)?>',FONTSIZE,'16pt',WIDTH,400 )" class="browse_cell left">

'item_description' is a text field that is stored in a db.

This is example of Tip() syntax:
<a href="index.htm" onmouseover="Tip('Some text')">Homepage </a>
