Text from IE

Is there a way to grab the text from IE that is under the cursor?

For example, if I move the mouse over any text, say in an article, could I have a simple utility that would tell me what word I am moving over?  I did create an app that would do this when moving the   mouse over text in a text box but am unsure if it's even feasible to do this new thing.

A standalone app or a solution based on the web server would work.

Any ideas?   I guess I am not asking so much _how_ to do it - although that would be nice to get some guidance, but more so _can_ it be done?

Thanks,
CS

Hello,

If you read up on:

Then you program a plugin that should do simularly to what you have done previously.  Yes it can be done with some work.
