My first Atlas Adventure

So I'm learning how to use Atlas at work right now, and so far my first lesson was to find an odd little bug. I'm not sure whether or not it is an atlas bug or some rule of HTML that I'm not familiar with, but in following this example .

If I modify it slightly and add a new label (the bold is what I added):

<span id="mySpan" />

What is the definition of a <a id="hoverLink" class="hoverlabel">word</a>?

<div id="popup" style="visibility:hidden;display:none;border:solid 1px black;background-color:Yellow;">

A sound or a combination of sounds.


And add to the xml markup:

<label id="mySpan" text="Hello World" />

<control id="popup">


<popupBehavior id="popupBehavior" parentElement="hoverLink" positioningMode="BottomLeft"/>



It breaks and says that it can not find the popup control. However if I declare the span element like:

<span id="mySpan" ></span>

Then everything is peachy.
