Can I get to know to achieve the following in DHTML:

I have multiple hyerplinks with some description of the left page. On the right page, I have a calendar (html table). Now I want to allow the user to drag the description on the left and drop on the calendar. This should fill the calendar with this description in the time-slot where the user will drop the description.

Use a script like http://javascript.internet.com/page-details/drag-n-drop.html to have the drag and drop, and then when the object is "dropped", add to that event the writing of information behind the object into the cell closest to the co-ords where the object was dropped.
