Balloon Hint and PHP survey form

Hi!

I am creating an online PHP survey. I just wonder how I may make a balloon hint to show at mouseover. To be more specific,  the survey form asks for client's (1) name (2) email, (3) address, (4) phone number ... : When the mouse is over "name", I would a ballon hint (saying "You should put your full name.") to show up.

I hope you experts may help me out.

Thanks a lot!

<div title="You should put your full name">Name</div>

this is the simplest way, there are some other ways that use layers and stuff like that, but this is the simplest form

Thank you so much for your very kind  response.

dr_dedo, your tip worked just fine.

ClickCentric, I tried your tip. For some reason (most likely because of my fault), it did not work. I want a tool tip show over or around a text.

Would you kindly check whether I did it properly?
___________my script _____________________
<table>
 <ul>
    <tr><th><li>Major:</li></th><td><input type="text" name="major" size="28"
                  value onmouseover="return escape('Please put your major correctly')"></td>

____________________________________________________________________________

Thanks a lot!

Well, I was just really pointing out the concept.  You can use additional code to locate a javascript tooltip to the position that you want it.  The times I've needed to use it, I needed a more graphical solution, so I had to go the javascript route.  dr_dedo's method works great as long as you just need text, though.

Thank you so much for your very kind response.

I really appreciate your kind help.

Because dr_dedo's tip worked just great with my work, I already accepted his as a solution.

Hope you may continue to respond to my future calls for help in this site.

Thanks again!
