Javascript Window Question.....

Hi All,

I'd like to have on my page when a user moves over the text, or the
image a window pop up with some info. Rather than having an ALERT
popup, can I do one of those text annotations?
Similar to when you move over an icon in Windows, and it displays a
small text box telling you the file name, size, date of
creation....... ...

Thanks,

Arthur

Most elements accept a title attribute to provide advisory information
about them. (I assume you are talking about an HTML document).

No JavaScript involved.

Many graphical browsers render the content of title attributes as a
tooltip.

Put your mouse over that "Javascript " word in the second
bulletpoint.... ...I like that.......

for very small popups give the elements a "title"

<a href="#there" title="go there">over there</a>

Bye.
