for each table i am trying different methods for "tooltips" -except that they will contain generated content and links, so i am trying the "dialog" i did not know that dialog could be positioned, until i read the previous thread from August. on my sample page the first table, last cell, the "p" tag displays the dialog as expected. the second table.last cell is just using anchors. then the third table, last cell i want to use the dialog method again, this time with an icon. but in this case-the dialog is showing up at its default - viewport center. i am not getting any errors in firebug for the js. can smeone see what is wrong with the dialog positioning?
