HOW TO (THE EASY METHOD):

1. Identify the HTML element that will trigger a tooltip, such as:
    <a href="#">Foobar</a>
2. Add a class name and title to the element
    <a href="#" class="hastip" title="I am the tooltip text">Foobar</a>
3. Link to it with jQuery
    $('.hastip').tooltipsy();
4. Style it with CSS however you like, for example:
    .tooltipsy
    {
        padding: 10px;
        max-width: 200px;
        color: #303030;
        background-color: #f5f5b5;
        border: 1px solid #deca7e;
    }
5. Enjoy lovely tooltips

OPTION QUICK REFERENCE:

- alignTo: "element" or "cursor" (Defaults to "element")
- offset: Tooltipsy distance from element or mouse cursor, dependent on alignTo setting. Set as array [x, y] (Defaults to [0, -1])
- content: HTML or text content of tooltip. Defaults to "" (empty string), which pulls content from target element's title attribute
- show: function(event, tooltip) to show the tooltip. Defaults to a show(100) effect
- showEvent: Set a custom event to bind the show function. Defaults to mouseenter
- hide: function(event, tooltip) to hide the tooltip. Defaults to a fadeOut(100) effect
- hideEvent: Set a custom event to bind the show function. Defaults to mouseleave
- delay: A delay in milliseconds before showing a tooltip. Set to 0 for no delay. Defaults to 200
- css: object containing CSS properties and values. Defaults to {} to use stylesheet for styles
- className: DOM class for styling tooltips with CSS. Defaults to "tooltipsy"

METHOD QUICK REFERENCE:

- $('.hastip').data('tooltipsy').show(): Force the tooltip to show
- $('.hastip').data('tooltipsy').hide(): Force the tooltip to hide
- $('.hastip').data('tooltipsy').destroy(): Remove the tooltip from DOM

OTHER GREAT THINGS TO KNOW:

- You can use ajax, for example:
    $('.hastip').tooltipsy({
        content: function ($el, $tip) {
            $.get('api.php', function (data) {
                $el.html(data);
            });
            return 'Fallback content';
        }
    });
