Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Using tooltips to enhance form usability, part of Bootstrap 2: Adding Interactivity to Your Site.
The next thing I'd like to add to this page is a Tooltip. …Tooltips are what you can get when you roll over something on the page. …You can have a little balloon sort of pop up that has text inside of it that might …provide more information about what's expected on one of these form fields. …If you've got a really long, complicated sort of form Tooltips can be pretty helpful. …You can have one come up for example and talk about the formatting required for a …phone number or you could talk about the type of information that you're looking …for in a particular form widget that kind of thing.…

<div>A: custom.css isn't created until the carousel indicators are added. However, these styles have to do with the way the indicators look, and nothinghas to do with the way the carousel functions.</div><div> </div><div>Are you sure you're working with Bootstrap 2.x? You download that from here:
