Nedjo, looks really useful!

Morbus, this would be really useful for making help
tooltips, kind of like balloon help in the Mac OS.

I'd be interested in using it to make a tooltip theme
for theme designers that pops up what phptemplate
variable is responsible for each part of the page, and
maybe shows a border when hovering over the element.
