Each one of the work items have a hidden div that is shown when the mouse is hovering over the div. I wrote this functionality in jQuery. Works fine in Firefox, Safari, and IE6. However, in IE7 and IE8, the floating div is transparent when it shouldn't be. I have exhausted all of my options. I need fresh pairs of eyes on this problem. Can anyone help?
/* JQUERY/JAVASCRIPT */
 
 

function loadHovertip() {

    $("div.hovertip").hover(

		function() {

		    hovertipShow(this);

		},

		function() {

		    hovertipHide(this);

		}

    );

    

    $("img.hovertipImg").hover(

		function() {

		    hovertipShow($(this).parent().parent().next().children("div.hovertip"));

		},

		function() {

		    hovertipHide($(this).parent().parent().next().children("div.hovertip"));

		}

    );

}
 
 

function hovertipShow(pDiv) {

	$(pDiv).addClass("hovertipHover");

	$(pDiv).children("div.hoverhide").hide();

	$(pDiv).children("div.hoveronly").show();

}
 
 

function hovertipHide(pDiv) {

	$(pDiv).removeClass("hovertipHover");

	$(pDiv).children("div.hoveronly").hide();

	$(pDiv).children("div.hoverhide").show();

}
 
 

/* CSS */
 
 

.hovertip,

* html .hovertipContainer

{

	position: static;

	z-index: 5;

	

	float: left;

}

	.hovertipHover

	{

		position: absolute;

		z-index: 80 !important;

		

		float: left;

		

		width: 180px;

		padding: 5px;

		

		background: #ffffff !important;

		border: 1px solid #d0d0d0;

	}
 

.hovertip div.hoveronly

{

	display: none;

	margin: 5px 0;

	background: #ffffff !important;

}

.hovertip span.hoveronly

{

	display: none;

	background: #ffffff !important;

}

I think your issue is z-index, not opacity. Try tweaking the z-index.

I have tweaked the z-index numerous times. Doesn't seem to work.

The tooltip's background is actually opaque. I've verified this using debug tools. Look at the tooltip when it opens, it is actually underneath the thumbnails below it.

I'd make sure that the script isn't overriding the z-index, that the script is not setting the position of the element back to static, and the stacking context of the elements. it could be you're setting the z-index of the tip inside of a parent element, which is actually behind another element.

it's hard to debug exactly what is going on.
