Is it possible to implement mouseover on a particular word in a datagrid


Is it possible to implement mouseover on a particular word in a datagrid
(not mouseover on the entire cell)? For instance, assuming tha I have a
'Definitions' MSSQL table as such:

Definitions
=======
Abbreviation Meaning
-------------- ----------
JVM Java Virtual Machine
Mac Macintosh
PC Personal Computer
OS Operating System
etc, etc.

Resultantly, in my data grid if any of the above abbreviations appear, on
mouseover I would like to display the 'Meaning' (using div??). Is this
possible? If so, could you provide some suggestions?

Thank you.

Hi,

In the DataGrid's ItemDataBound event, wrap the text with <a> element and
set the onmouseover attribute to call the javascript function which displays
the div at the particular position.
