jQuery UI Milestone release – Tooltip

Tooltip is a new widget that came out of the jQuery UI Planning Wiki. It is a jQuery Ui plugin built on top of the Widget Factory and utilized the new position utility plugin from jQuery UI 1.8

All you need is an element with a title attribute. Grab that element and call .tooltip() on it.
