Hello,

     I would like to create a mouse-over event when a user scrolls over a word in my webpage.  Similar to an imagemap I have, if I mouseover parts of the image, little popups appear.  Can I do the same with a single word or sentence on the page?

Thanks In Advance,
Jeremy

Hi neelyjer,

You can use the <abbr> tag perhaps:

<abbr title="Some more information">INFO</abbr> or you can use the <span> tag to achieve the same result.
