Tooltips and Hover Text

Does anyone know how to make Hover text stay on the screen longer then what is standard. My users are complaining because the tooltip dissappears before they can read everything.

Thanks,

Anthony

    We had the same complaint a long time ago and decided to just implement our own some great examples can be found at http://www.dynamicdrive.com "mouse overs" and such. Maybe one day I'll come back and see if things with the standard tooltip have changed.

    That link there is similiar to what we are using but we've changed the colors and fonts and everything of course.

    I know the JavaScript solution which can be modified for use within HTMLB/BSP. I haven't tried yet. But I see this code is compatible with many browsers and very flexible.

    Sorry guys, it is in russian, but you can check how it works there:

    and here is the script itself

    I will check this with HTMLB and post here the final soulution.
