problem with tooltip

Hai,

I have one doubt regarding tooltip using css.The statement
"display:block ! important" is working finely in IE7 and firefox. But
not working with IE6.

css code is

..tooltipInner {
margin:2px;
font-size:8pt;
vertical-align:top;
}
#tooltip .toolbox a:hover span {

display:block ! important ;
white-space: pre;
border: solid #000000 1px;
color:
black;
position: absolute;
font-family: tahoma;
background-color : #FFFFFF;
}

and the span class is

<span id="tooltip" >
<span class="toolbox" style="z-index:21">
<a style="position:relative;z-index:21;cursor:hand" >
<img src="/images/abc.gif" /><span
style="display:none; left: 30px; top: 5px; margin-left:20px">
<div class="tooltipInner" >Tool tip Content</
div></span></a>
</span>
</span>
Can any one help me to solve this problem.

Thanks,
Vidya.

Please post the URL, instead of code snippets. And it does not hurt to
validate your markup before asking for help in public.

Please supply your observations, not assumptions. What goes wrong in your
opinion?

(If you knew what really causes the symptoms, which you don't describe at
all, by the way, you would effectively have almost solved the problem.
Knowing what the problem really is at the technical level, in detail, is
more than 90 % of solving problems in IT matters.)

Tooltips are supposed to give clues, not to exhibit the author's
cluelessness.
