mozmill 1.1 UI could use some tooltips over the editor control icons. Can we get those in?

Turns out there are actually tooltips on all that stuff, they just aren't showing up in chrome, the way I have dealt with this in the past is by using the jquery tooltips plugin, which works fine in chrome and would solve the problem -- but this seems relatively minor and shouldn't block 1.2 release.

Moving to 1.3, this is going to require someone to track down why the tooltips aren't working in chrome land as they work just fine when you bring up mozmill.html in a content browser window

There's no way to get native tooltips unless we wrap Mozmill in some kind of XUL element and set the tooltip attribute and do what Firefox does, which is wait for the popupshowing event and detect which element it is firing over (and what it's title attribute is) to determine what to display in the tooltip.
we don't need native tooltips, we can just use jquery to create tooltips the way millions of websites do every day.

Alright, I'll look into those. Definitely some kind of helpful tooltip is better than none at all.

There are no editor controls anymore. But I did add support for tooltips to Mozmill with the new UI, if you give an element a title attribute it should have a tooltip.
