Hi all,

I have a 3 column  by 6 row table and the first column has an activity field.   When I hover over the mouse on that text I'd like a box to popup with explanation as what the activity is.
I am new at this and I haven't found anything helpful.  Is there any code that I can use.
I hop this makes sense.
thanks
Anna

Use the title attribute:
<td title="Explanation">activity</td>

The simple title tooltip is good for simple usage, but sometimes it just lacks the features needed. For example, you can't format the text in the title attribute (Adding bold style, going to the next line...).

This is an easy-to-integrate powerful tooltip which uses javascript. The site has step-by-step instruction on how to integrate into your html code.

Can I incorporate the following line in a table cell
<DIV onMouseover="ddrivetip('This DIV has a tip!', '#EFEFEF')";
 onMouseout="hideddrivetip()">Some text here. Some text here.</div>

Yes.

(You should use either div or DIV, not combine <DIV> and </div>.)

Yes. In fact you should always use lowercase in xHtml (the newer version of html standard). There's no more tags which is in uppercase. All should be in lowercase.

I'm sorry, it was not my intention to object as such, I was wondering why the points was not split in the normal way. From the help pages:

Accept your own comment, and award points to Experts for their assistance
    If you answered your own question, but wish to award points to Experts for their attempts to help, use this option.

annayeg did not answer her own question, and we did more than "attempt" to help.

I'm new here, this was the first question for me that was beeing closed in this manner.
