Basic Usage:

		theme: "blue"

6. More Options

    position    : 'default',    // should the tooltip follow the mouse [default,mouse]
    timeToStop  : null,         // only works with position default - the time mouse has to stop before triggering display of tooltip
    theme       : 'cream',      // allow custom with #FFAACC
    opacity     : 0.8,          // opacity level
    title       : null,         // manually set title
    fadeIn      : 0,            // time before tooltip appears in milliseconds
    fadeOut     : 0,            // time before tooltip fades in milliseconds
    delayIn     : 0,            // time before tooltip displays in milliseconds
    delayOut    : 0,            // time before tooltip begins to dissapear in milliseconds
    width       : null,         // define a set width for the tooltip
    height      : null,         // define a set height for the tooltip
    offsetX     : 8,            // x offset of mouse position
    offsetY     : 9,            // y offset of mouse position
    html        : true          // title is inserted as HTML rather than text
