 I pushed code for the new tooltip. I used Tyron's suggestion to

 behavior, like the tooltip sometimes not update its position while in
 the animation phase.

column highlighting conflict is fixed, however the problem under IE9
persists: I can't read a thing in these tooltips.

Fixed in my git. After went through the qTip code, I found there was a bug in qTip. The bug make tooltips initialized with empty string always have 20px width in (my) IE. I'll report this bug to qTip community.

Thank you for the feedback.

I'd say don't bother reporting that to the qTtip crowd since qTip 1 is
deprecated (the version we use), they are working on qTip 2, which is
not yet released (yeah, I know, that makes no sense...).

By the way, now we have 2 different types of tooltips, I'd love to see
them being unified some how. The other kind of tooltips are also created
in functions.js, by function initTooltips(). So maybe PMA_createqTip()
can be used to create those, too. Also the two functions should be
phisically next to each other in the file, since they are kind of
related. And the cherry on the cake would be if these two types of
tooltips could be styled in a similar way and thus look more consistent.


The style can be similar but I still think it's good to have them
differ slightly for the 2 different uses. One for hints such as "Hey
you can sort this table by clicking the columns" and the others for
longer footnotes and explanations.

So I find it great that Aris' tooltip is fancy and animated for the first case.

Yes, I agree with Tyron about this. I think it is good to have the two slightly different tooltips for different usage.
