CSS Tooltip

I once had to deal with the tooltip of a dropdown menu. The button which opened the menu right below it (on mouseover) had a tooltip which always appeared below the button as well, covering part of the first menu item, which made it annoying for the user to deal with.

Since it was not really possible to change the positioning of the menu, I removed the button's tooltip and instead used CSS to create a DIV element which behaved exactly like a tooltip, containing the original tooltip's text. That way, I could control the element's position and ensure no elements are hidden. The element was also styled to resemble a typical browser tooltip.

This sounds like a common problem that everybody might run into sooner or later! Thanks for sharing!
