I have tooltips for all my custom UI.  They work fine.  What does Orca say is in the table for your dialog?

The e-mail below is from an external source.  Please do not open attachments or click links from an unknown or suspicious origin.

When mousing over the fields with ToolTip set, no text appears. What is necessary to enable the tooltips to appear? Everything compiles OK and installs OK. Viewed install log with verbose logging and no errors show.
Have tried using text as opposed to localized strings. No difference was noticed. Added pipes ("|") as suggested somewhere, but made no difference.
Here is a snippet with the ToolTip:
