Jquery Tiptip IE6

May 06, 2010

Tiptip is a nice jquery plugin for displaying tooltips in a simple and elegant manner. All you need to do is set the title attribute with the tooltip content then give it a class name so it it picked up by the tooltip initializer.

However, it currently doesnt work in IE6 that well. Although users are falling I think you still need at least rudimentary support for IE6.

Create a conditional comment which includes a stylesheet load in your document header.

<!--[if IE 6]>
     <link href="/stylesheets/ie6.css?1273083940" media="screen" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

And add the following rules to the stylesheet.
