I changed the subject of this email to make it clearer.

I pushed new code using qTip to my repo. You may try the demo at [0]. But, there are some bugs left:
- qTip seems to conflict with column highlighting.
- I use qtip.hide() to hide the qtip when column header is clicked in order to mark/unmark or to reorder column. But, sometimesĀ itĀ just disappear and never come back again.

I think these problems won't happen in sortable tables on the status page, since it doesn't need special handling as in browse-mode.
Before I proceed further, I would like to hear any comment or feedback from other phpMyAdmin developers and GSoC-ers about this qTip usage.
