My first answer is not to provide help in a new
window.  OnMouseOver, as you discovered, gets
executed whenever a valid area is crossed-- very troublesome.

I could not retrieve your site because of traffic.
It might be better implemented if you had a textarea
near the link you are refering to.  Then, setting the
textarea to the help text would be a simple assignment
and you could remove the new window.
