= A new version of this script is available: Tipped 4

Tipped allows you to easily create beautiful tooltips using the jQuery Javascript library.

Evolved from the popular Prototip library, Tipped takes tooltips to the next level by using HTML5 to give you full control over the look and feel of your tooltips.

Canvas graphics

The entire skin of the tooltip, from shadow to loading icon, is drawn using Canvas. This means that tooltip styles can easily be changed without having to create any images.

Canvas based tooltips also have the advantage that they look great in every browser, even in IE6!
