See sample code.

However I would suggest that you use a movieclip instead of text for the tooltip so you can draw it out yourself.

var format1:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); // text format
format1.font = "Arial"; // font type
format1.size = 20; //size
format1.bold = true; // bold
format1.italic = true; // italic
text1.setTextFormat(format1);
