2.8 is seriously old. Got a good reason not to upgrade? I do this with 
EITHER a  GetFeature control, using a WFS protocol, hover:true and 
propertyNames set to attributes I want, with registered events for 
"hoverfeature" and "outfeature";
a WMSGetFeatureInfo control with hover:true, handler options of
and register a handler for"getfeatureinfo" event to show the tooltip. I 
am assuming the controls and events are available in 2.8.
