Trying to make a simple, gracefully degrading “hover-this-thing-and-see-some-sort-of-description-thing” (If there is a name for these things let me know).
However, I keep getting some gaps below each item which, obviously, I don’t really want.
There are number of solutions depending on what is being hovered so you don’t need all that extra mark-up.
It looks like you want an ‘overlay’ rather than a ‘tooltip’.
@ChrisP – Nice catch, it’s way to easy to get code blind!
@paulie_d – Why I never thought of using the figure element is beyond me, definately the right way to go in this case!
The beauty of the figure/figcaption is that the text is readable by screen readers as well although the [alt] tag would work just as well.
