Nice help system, only one thing, I'm using it in IE and theres a 2-3 second pause from the time that I click on the next link to the next message being shown. I've set delay, fadeSpeed and time on each message to 0 but this has not made a difference. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Wow, this is great. We did a one-off version of this, but your tool looks even better.

Its cool, I like it. @Rob there's no reason for it to be mandatory! In a real application there should be a start button. eg. http://icant.co.uk/sandbox/stepbystep/noauto.html A nice feature might be an animated scroll, when the page position jumps around you quickly loose track of where you are on the page, if it scrolled to position you'd be able to follow it more easily. Perhaps also an emergency stop, it should probably stop if you click anywhere or hit a key, or just pause with notification and an offer to resume on the current popup.

My first reaction when I opened the 'automatically' variant was: irritating. If you are a bit more experienced the appearance of the box is that, so I'd find something better for that. The manual variant is much better. The tips are also quite useless for almost everyone with only a bit of experience with computers. I can imagine the way the script controlls the page (eg putting the active field at the top of the screen) can be a surprise for those people who actually might find this a useful addiction. A solution to this might be a Find Position script, like this one at Quirksmode.org.
