I've searched around here on "Tooltip" but could not find quite what I
was looking for.

I have a list:


masterList contains some results of submitting 24 cases to NDSolve.
Each case runs NDSolve 23 times, and for each of those 23 runs I
gather in a list of length 3 (an input angular acceleration, the rpm
at which a certain event occurs, and the elapsed time to the event).

When I do


I get what I want: cases 23 and 24 are are graphed in one plot
(acceleration abscissa, rpm ordinate). Using
First@Dimensions[masterList] in place of {23,24} gives all 24 cases
graphed in one plot, again just what I want.

When I wrap Tooltip around the Evaluate I get (after a couple of
warnings) the coordinates when I hover the mouse over a particular
curve, which is what I do not want.  I want the displayed Tooltip to
be <i>, no matter where I hover the mouse over any one graph in the

I have tried several other naive things to no avail.

Any ideas on how to get what I want (even if it's not using Tooltip)
would be greatly appreciated.
