Could anyone provide a simple example of a tooltip? I would image it would be fairly easy to do suing positioning - I just cant seem to get it right, especially if I position the div with the tooltip in to the left and my element is on the far left.
Can anyone help?

Try resizing the browser on that tooltip. It shows outside the browser window, so not awesome ;)
