      Description

      Tooltips support full wrapping. But the generator of those is truncating to 300 char in SeqPanel overall and 40 char in SequenceAnnotationReport for any given feature.

      This leads to unhelpful tooltips such as: "Only hits with s..."

      Associated with this is the question of links in tooltips. Do we want to enable this for JavaScript? It might be possible. (Right now the tooltip closes before clicking on it is possible, but there should be a way around that.)

      Java sometimes shows a link and sometimes doesn't. It depends on the link's placement. But I think in Java you can't click on the link for the same reason.
