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,

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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
