I have been asked how you can have tooltips containing links, well this is one way.

As with my previous tooltips demonstration Opera cannot get it right, no matter how hard I have tried, the :hover does not display correctly.

Perhaps the next release of Opera can rectify this 'bug'.

This has been tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox, Netscape, Mozilla and Safari (PC). It should also be ok in Safari (Mac) and Camino.
