I agree with Jukka. I took a look at your page with styles disabled, and it
doesn't make sense.

In my sample link (http://bushidodesigns.net/tooltips/) if you disable
styles, you can jump back and forth between the terms and it still makes
sense. The only thing I'm not sure about is how it works for the
screenreader user who has js enabled.
