Alternative Tool Tip for SSI Web 8

I have a particularly long tool tip and it busts the seams of the dialog box. I know I can hard-code in the size of the box, but this particular tool tip is dynamic in nature so I can’t tell what the box size might be. Furthermore, when using a tool tip in a far-right-hand grid, sometimes the tool tip will exceed the bounds of the survey window. Do you have any suggestions?

Here’s a solution that utilizes the built-in jQuery UI tool-tip function which is new with version 8.

<script>$(function() {$( ".popup" ).tooltip();});</script>
<div class="popup"><a href="#" title="HoverText">HoverOverMe</a></div>
