So I am trying to use tipTip on an anchor link and use the link text (which is being indented via CSS, -9999px) to display in the tipTip popup and I need some help getting it working.

Here is what I have for markup:


<li class="commute"><a href="benchmarks.html#commute">Average Commute Time</a></li>
<li class="degree alt"><a href="benchmarks.html#degree" title="">Bachelor's Degrees Awarded per Capita</a></li>
<li class="math-science"><a href="benchmarks.html#math-science">Student Achievement in Math and Science</a></li>

And here is my jQuery:


$("#top-list li a").tipTip({content: $(this).html(), defaultPosition: "top", edgeOffset: 0, delay: 300});


Any thoughts?
