I'm looking for a way to display text info on the screen when the mouse
moves over an <a> tag. Something along the lines like the box that displays
the split categories in Quicken, or how the alt displays in
src="images/display_report.gif" alt="CLICK HERE FOR RESULTS"
I want to display a list of names and display their address and other info
when you mouse over them.
Any suggestions how to do this?
Using "alt" text as a tooltip is only done by Internet Explorer, and is
considered a bug of that browser by many people.
The correct way of adding supplimentary information to page elements is
using the "title" attribute. This is supported by almost every graphical
browser, including Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox, Opera, Safari,
<a href="http://www.example.com /" title="Extra hint text">example</a>
<img src="images/display_report.gif" alt="Results"
title="Click here for results.">
<p title="This is a paragraph.">Foo bar bat.</p>
