These can all be changed as desired:

jQuery("#element").wTooltip({ //defaults, can be overidden
    content: null, //string content for tooltip.
    ajax: null, //path to content for tooltip
    follow: true, //does tooltip follow the cursor?
    auto: true, //If false, tooltip won't automatically transition, it must be manually shown/hidden
    fadeIn: 0, //fade in, in milliseconds ("fast, "slow", etc may also be used)
    fadeOut: 0, //fade out, in milliseconds ("fast, "slow", etc may also be used)
    appendTip: document.body, //should probably not need to be overridden
    degrade: false, //if true, in IE6 tooltip will degrade to a title attribute message
    offsetY: 10, //offsetY and offsetX properties designate position from the cursor
    offsetX: 1,
    style: { //the default style rules of the tooltip
        border: "1px solid gray",
        background: "#edeef0",
        color: "#000",
        padding: "10px",
        zIndex: "1000",
        textAlign: "left"
    },
    className: null, //to style the tooltip externally, pass a className or id
    id: null,
    callBefore: function(tooltip, node, settings){
    }, //called when mouse enters the area
    callAfter: function(tooltip, node, settings){
    }, //called when mouse leaves the area (same as "callback" option)
    clickAction: function(tooltip, node){
        $(tooltip).hide();
    }, //called when the element is clicked, with access to tooltip
    delay: 0, //delay (in milliseconds)before tooltip appears and callBefore executes
    timeout: 0, //delay (in milliseconds)before tooltip transitions away, and callAfter executes
});
