2) Fancy & Animated Tooltip (CSS Only)

Fancy & Animated Tooltip (CSS Only) 
Demo Image: Fancy & Animated Tooltip (CSS Only)

Simply a tooltip with a shiny/modern opening animation.

Easy-to-use: Only the custom attribute »data-tooltip« has to be added to the respective element.

Elements that can’t contain other elements, such as »input«, can’t use the tooltip. A simple solution would be to wrap the element in a div and then attach the tooltip to the div.

Hint - a CSS tooltip library 
Demo Image: Hint – a CSS tooltip library

This an attempt to make a mini tooltip library in pure CSS. Does the basic job but still has bugs and lacks some important features. Will try improving this into some usable thing. Note: Works best on Firefox (transitions on pseudo elements not supported on any other browser).

This is a single element tooltip that is somewhat accessible. Tooltips are activated on hover, or when they receive focus. VoiceOver does announce the content on focus, but not on hover.
