Hi Sebastian,

To show tooltips with more than just plaintext you need to implement your
own fake ones. For an example of this see
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.swt.sni ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet41.java?rev=HEAD&a mp;content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup .
This approach allows any widget (eg.- StyledText, Browser, etc.) to be used
to show the tooltip content.

The rich tooltips you see aren't native tooltips. See the following
snippet for how to create a richer tooltip.

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.swt.sni ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet125.java?rev=HEAD& amp;content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

The basis is that you create a shell and then you have complete control
over it's format and contents.
