I want to have a callout when the mouse moves over a particular <td> or a <tr>
So like on the mouseover event i want to show a callout - and this callout
will have dynamic data.
I am able to show the data using a pop-up but it does not look like a callout - so can you please let me know how to add a callout to display the dynamic data

What is a callout? Can you explain what you mean in plain English?

On http://www.walterzorn.com/tooltip/tooltip_e.htm you can find javascript
to show a tooltip.
Is this what you're looking for?

Say, if you open Microsoft word document , select ->View-> Toolbars-> Drawing . From the Drawing toolbar select the option - autoshapes. It has one of the menus called - 'Callouts' - I was referring to this.
Its ideally a tool-tip, but with different shapes.
