Floating Window/Glossary terms/Mouse rollover/supported by IE and Mozilla/netscape

Hi,

I need help - I'd like to create a small window for words on a website that require a definition. When someone rolls their mouse over the word a pop up will fade in and fade out when the mouse rolls off the link. I don't want it to be blocked by someone's browser that blocks pop ups.

I also would like it to be database driven so if a mouse rolls over a word it can pass the word - that will find the definition in a db and print the results to the div window etc. Kind of like what experts exchange does.

code or links to code will be very helpful. I currently am working with php/mysql on a linux platform.

Thanks!

Dear pinaldave,

I think that I should get my points back because I didn't get a good answer to my question.

Thank you for your understanding,

I just didn't think it was worth 250 points and you yourself said it was out of your league -- seriously I didn't respond because I was waiting for some other comments but no one posted any
