Simple Example of using the YUI Tooltip Widget for Online Help

I've written an example HTML page that uses the Yahoo! YUI Tooltip Widget to popup a small informational window when your mouse hovers over a specific class of web page element. It works pretty well and is easy to set up.

You can download the example page from Github HERE.

The YUI JavaScript libraries and stylesheets are substantial, which is both good and bad. I haven't figured out how to modify the style of my tooltips yet - that'll take a bit of digging. But even this simple code is coming in very handy.
