In Adobe Dreamweaver CS4, with regard to Spry Tooltips, how can I define a specific area of a graphic that triggers a tooltip?

I love Adobe Dreamweaver's Spry Tooltips.  But how can I trigger a tooltip to occur over a part of a graphic that isn't a div or other html-defined section?  I wish there would be a tool like the Rectangular Marquee tool in Photoshop, or even the Lasso tool.  Is there such a thing in Dreamweaver?  Thanks.

You can't do it easily.  The closest you can come would to be to draw an image map and apply the tooltip behavior to that.  But Spry isn't very flexible and it may not like your choice in regions.  If so, you're kind of out of luck on the Spry front and would need to switch to a different solution.  I'm fairly sure you could do this in jquery given enough effort.

No, because Dreamweaver is limited to what CSS and HTML can accomplish.  You're comparing apples to spaceships when you talk about Photoshop tools in a HTML editor.  Depending on exactly what you are trying to do, Flash may be an option...
