SPAN Attributed TITLE doesn't work in IE, but works in FF

P: n/a
Can anyone tell me why this page:
<head>
<Title>testpage</title>
</head><body>
<span title="test">Test</span>
</body>
</HTML>

Doesn't work in IE 6 but works in FF?
When I move the mouse over the word Test in IE, I do not see a 'popup'
or whatever it's called. But in FireFox I do.

Is there some sort of an option in IE to don't do these hovers?

The HTML or CSS specification neither requires nor forbids such a popup.
So it's not the case that FireFox is "working" while IE is not; the two
are simply behaving differently.

It's commonly called a tool tip.

Have you tried the title property with HTML tags like <a>, <divor
<td>? You might have more reason to use that property with those tags,
to indicate the results of clicking something an item in a navigation menu.

"This" is not a page but a Usenet article.
And it has nothing to do with stylesheets.

F'up set. Bye!

I get a tooltip popup in my IE6 when I do this.

As do I. Opera displays the tip on a status bar, and FF does....
nothing.
