I'm using the javascript tooltip by watler zorn and i've come across a little problem.

I've got an image that I've applied an image map to, and mousing over areas reveals the tootip. I've put some html in the tooltip, including a link. This is all fine, and the link works as expected.

The problem is that if a user clicks on the area, they're taken to the page that the link points to, and what I want it to do is show the tooltip. But of course I can't put two events on one html tag, and I can't use a nested tag as suggested in the documentation as i'm using the area tag which is self closing.

Does anyone know how to do this, without using a different tooltip script?
