[pmwiki-users] Tool tips not working for me (Also Re: Title Attribute?)

	I'm sure there's a way... I just have no idea how to do it :) When  
it comes to PHP I know *just* enough to get myself in trouble (and to  
find simple errors in other's code), but when it gets down to some of  
the wizardry that patrick has done, I'm lost.

	On the philosophical side, by setting both Summary and Description  
for a page, you may find greater flexibility in the future. For  
instance, the Description could be used a as very short description  
of the page (eg. "Examining Achaeopteryx", but Summary would  
literally summarize the content of the page (eg. "Although  
Achaeopteryx had both teeth and flight feathers, it considered a  
primitive bird.")

	Just a thought.
