When setting up Tool Tips, using double-quotes may lead to unexpected results. Double-quotes that appear as the FIRST and/or LAST character of a tool tip in configuration will not appear in runtime. For example:

Toggles the tag "DIG1" becomes
    Toggles the tag "DIG1 in runtime;

"DIG1" gets toggled becomes
    DIG1" gets toggled in runtime;

"Toggles the tag "DIG1"" becomes
    Toggles the tag "DIG1" in runtime;

"Toggles the tag DIG1" becomes
    Toggles the tag DIG1 in runtime. 

This is a symptom of the way in which the compiler works- it strips the leading and trailing double-quotes when dealing with static strings. A simple work-around to this, where it is a problem, is to use 'single-quotes' where quotation marks are necessary.
