Hello, experts

I got this javascript tool tip code from this site

I placed this code inside an iframe.
The tool tip window won't go over the parent page, and the tool tip get chopped.

I placed style.css in parent document but no luck.

How do I make this work?

That is not possible by design.  The script is supposed to be contained within the iframe.

If you really want to do this, you will have to do a lot of extra coding to place the code in the parent page, and have it react to elements inside the iframe.
