I am using title in the td tag. Can some please tell me if there are any other properties for title whether it be style or whatever. The main thing I way to do is make the popover stay visible longer. I can find no documentation on this.

Here is an example:

<tr><td title="more info">info</td>

Can control the visibility, change the font, background, text color, boldness?

thanks, Troy

Your best bet would be to use a CSS approach to give you optimum control. It also goves you a permanent box until you mouseout...

The title attribute cannot be styled, so you would need to use Sean's suggestion, or use something like http://www.javascriptworld.com/scripts/chap15/script03.html

hi troy

u can use style sheets, where in u can control the look of ur text

use dreamweaver for creating style sheets in case ur not sure of how to create one. otherwise u can create ur own style sheets.

I am working with the css stuff and ran into a problem. I am doing the position:relative. Which positions this relative to the poniter. What I want to do is position vertically based on the pointer position, but horizontally, I want to position all the way to the left. This way I can use the whole screen and horizontally as I have a lot of info to display and do not have to worry about each individual hover as to where it falls in the sheet and try to position negatively off of that.

Thanks, Troy
