View Source lessons

Recently I was browsing the Groove website (all that rumour about MS buying Groove, interviews with Oz, etc.).
Nevertheless, somehow I got to their Store and spotted nicely done tooltips. Javascript os Css? was I thinking, pressing the 'View Source'
button... and then ... what a surprise! On a commercial web site... I see this:


CSS Tooltip
Pure CSS Tooltip, based on:
http://www.madaboutstyle.com/tooltip2.html
and
http://www.meyerweb.com/eric/css/edge/popups/demo.html
Usage:
<a class="tooltip" href="">Foo<span>Foo means something
something</span></a>

Not only the person points to the original articles where the trick was
described, but even the usage!
Honest - I have seen a lot of html source code, but this is something
outstanding. I even spent some time looking for the webmaster address, but
could not find it.

Anyway. This is a lesson I should learn from. Frankly speaking, our source code leaves a lot to be desired.
