Like this:

<a href="page.html" onMouseOver="window.status = 'Hello!'; return true;" onMouseOut="window.status = ' '; return true;">click me</a>

Try this, and see the difference:

<A HREF="http://www.yahoo.com" onMouseOver="window.status='My website'; return true;">Yahoo</A>
<BR>
<A HREF="http://www.altavista.com">Altavista</a>


Hope this helps!
