Test: Hide mouse over on tooltip using brackets

[Nothing shows up in the tooltip if I contain it within brackets? Let’s find out…



I saw no mouseover text. Handy for spoilerific opening posts.

Or ASCII goatse.

never mind

I’m not willing to start another thread to test this, but what if you begin the post with an open and close bracket ?

Will that do a full stop on the tooltip text or will the mouseover text pick up after the close bracket?

It will pick up after the close bracket

I wish more of our longwinded dopers would use the brackets. In particular it is useful for those posts that have 2 paragraphs of introductory exposition before getting to the point. You put brackets on the exposition and only the meat of the post shows up in mouseover.
