yahoo new mouseovers

I am trying to build the same text link mouseover as yahoo has on each
news item. when you hover over the link, a small box pops up and
displays a photo wtih text.

I can get the box to pop up, but I can get it to position away from the
mouse icon. I want the menu box to display 25 pix down and 10 to the
right of the mouse icon on the hover.

I have tried using fixed, absolute etc css position on the menu but it
will not position correctly.

thanks

Those wouldn not work.
etc css position
Does that include position:relative?
on the menu
position:relative should be on the 'popup', not on the menu.
It could work with position:absolute on the 'popup' in combination
with position:relative on each menu item, but that usually is a bit
over the top and may result in various other problems.
but it will not position correctly.


Does it now?
If not - provide a URL so people can see what is happening.

Either post a question on a DHTML newsgroup or search for a DHTML tutorial on
obtaining the user's current mouse position.
