Does anyone know how to create a tooltip when the mouse is over a select box? What I am trying to do is replicate the tooltip shown when the mouse hovers over any other html tag when using the title tag. Our application is dependant on the userís mouse being able to help and assist in them when filling out the forms. So when the user is viewing the form they can place their mouse cursor over any element and the title of that element is shown. This fix would only have to work in IE.

Just being a little pedantic, we try to avoid having too much script running client side. And none is better as far as the project leader is concerned. I do realize that what we are after will require some scripting and having several options available for the demo would be nice. I will be pushing for the DHTML options as they are much nicer and have a better look and feel to them. But showing some of the less scripted ones is also nice.

I suppose this is cheating but it can all be done in HTML, it is intuitive for the user and it works. What I have done in the past is stick a little image of a question mark beside each input box. You can place the tips in the alt text for the question mark images and the user can view them when they hover over the question mark.
