Option Onmouseover

Dan
Hey Everybody!

I have seen a few old posts on this but they were only solutions for
NN.

I am trying to capture the onmouseout event on an option. I know there
is no mouseover/out event(in IE 6), therefore I ask, does anyone have
a work around?

Essentially what I need is a tooltip that displays the entire contents
of a dropdown/select if the contents of the option are getting
truncated due to the width of the dropdown/select. And I want to do
this while the dropdown/select is expanded.

Can some recommend an open source 3rd party control if there is no
solution when using the standard select?

Thanks! Dan

Use the `title' attribute of the `option' element for this.
