use the title property to display a text message for onmouseover event:

<form>
<input title="This information is a  tooltip!" type=button value="Move mouse here!">
</form>

Defining coordinates isn't that difficult. You can use the <area> tag. Example code can be found on any site that documents how to create an image map, i.e. http://www.htmldog.com/reference/htmltags/area/

For general tooltips, you can try adding the title and alt attributes to the <area> tags themselves for tooltips, i.e.

<area shape="poly" coords="blah coords" title="Part of the Moon" alt="Part of the Moon" />

Now, if you want your page to display a message on mouseover, you can also check out Javascript tooltip menus such as this one: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/dhtmltooltip2.htm

and just make sure the onmouseover is on the area tag!

If you're on Windows, MS Paint can give you the co-ords you need... in fact almost all image editing software can.  Simple hover your mouse at a location and look at the staus bar. Callrs' snippet is a perfectly simple example on the tooltip and will work fine.

thanks guys,
I don't want to use "alt", I already use it and doesn't look like professional in my case.
also the coordinate is very complicate to define it using such a methods.
anyway I just need to show a provessional text message pop up when mouse move over not HOVER.

Thanks.
