Hi Andy,

-Replace hover by focus
-Replace "}, function() {" by "}); this.blur( function() {"

I've edited the current release for you.

(function($) {
    $.fn.tipsy = function(opts) {
        opts = $.extend({fade: false, gravity: 'n'}, opts || {});
        var tip = null, cancelHide = false;
        this.focus(function() {
            $.data(this, 'cancel.tipsy', true);
            var tip = $.data(this, 'active.tipsy');
            if (!tip) {
                tip = $('<div class="tipsy"><div class="tipsy-inner">' + $(this).attr('title') + '</div></div>');
                tip.css({position: 'absolute', zIndex: 100000});
                $(this).attr('title', '');
                $.data(this, 'active.tipsy', tip);
            var pos = $.extend({}, $(this).offset(), {width: this.offsetWidth, height: this.offsetHeight});
            tip.remove().css({top: 0, left: 0, visibility: 'hidden', display: 'block'}).appendTo(document.body);
            var actualWidth = tip[0].offsetWidth, actualHeight = tip[0].offsetHeight;
            switch (opts.gravity.charAt(0)) {
                case 'n':
                    tip.css({top: + pos.height, left: pos.left + pos.width / 2 - actualWidth / 2}).addClass('tipsy-north');
                case 's':
                    tip.css({top: - actualHeight, left: pos.left + pos.width / 2 - actualWidth / 2}).addClass('tipsy-south');
                case 'e':
                    tip.css({top: + pos.height / 2 - actualHeight / 2, left: pos.left - actualWidth}).addClass('tipsy-east');
                case 'w':
                    tip.css({top: + pos.height / 2 - actualHeight / 2, left: pos.left + pos.width}).addClass('tipsy-west');
            if (opts.fade) {
                tip.css({opacity: 0, display: 'block', visibility: 'visible'}).animate({opacity: 1});
            } else {
                tip.css({visibility: 'visible'});
        this.blur( function() {
            $.data(this, 'cancel.tipsy', false);
            var self = this;
            setTimeout(function() {
                if ($.data(this, 'cancel.tipsy')) return;
                var tip = $.data(self, 'active.tipsy');
                if (opts.fade) {
                    tip.stop().fadeOut(function() { $(this).remove(); });
                } else {
            }, 100);
