javascript var id from datbase

229 100+
Hi, Anyone know how to solve the following, if I can describe it well enough.

I have a database with interface.
I have a webpage with javascript popups. the links are as follows

[HTML]<a href="http://www.site.com" id="tip297">name</a>[/HTML]
in the head I have the external js file linked where all the ids are kept.
they are like this

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var tip6 = '<img src="a/6.jpg"><div class="tp2">name</div>';
As I have over 300 ids the external file is big, and having a search function on the site I dont want to have to download the whole file when only a few links with ids are thrown up, but instead only the ids associated with the links found in the search.
So I am trying the following. I have an unused form field in my database interface that will insert text into the page for each link dynamically. I am trying to insert the line like

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var tip6 = '<img src="a/6.jpg"><div class="tp2">name</div>';
into the page.

The insertion code is asp like this

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <%=rsCard("CardDescription")%>
I believe if put right it could include the js ref for each link. But anyone know how and where? In the link I have an id="" so I imagine the insertion code should go in the head but know idea how!

Hope someone understands my language.
Thanks
Richard
