When you link to attachments at the frame level, you can provide tooltips for the links. These tooltips appear when a user rests the mouse pointer over the link icon while viewing the topic in the Player. By default, the word "Link" is added as the tooltip when the link is created; however, you can change the link tooltip at any time. For example, you might want to use a tooltip that identifies the attachment contents, to provide users with information about the attachment before they launch it.
If you plan to deploy content to one or more Player outputs, use of tooltips is particularly important, especially for links to package files. For example, if a link launches a Flash animation that is several megabytes in size, you might use a tooltip such as "Flash animation of business process (4.65 MB)" to alert users before they click the link. Without such tooltips, users do not have a good indication of the type of content they will be launching or its purpose.
Tip: Although there is no limit to the length of a tooltip, concise, descriptive tooltips are most useful.
