Hi,

If you want to show a popup window for text, the best way to do this is using css only. Because if you implement using this you don’t want to worry about the browser compatibility.

Using the below code you can easily get it done

<style type="text/css">
.ToolText{position:relative; }
.ToolTextHover{position:relative;}
.ToolText span{display: none;}

.ToolTextHover span{
  display:block;
  position:absolute;
  border:1px solid black;
  top:1.3em;
  left:5px;
  background-color:gray; color:white;
  text-align: center;
}
</style>


<p class="ToolText" onMouseOver="javascript:this.className='ToolTextHover'" onMouseOut="javascript:this.className='ToolText'">

This is the text that will cause the tooltip

<span> And this is the Tooltip's text </span></p>

Enjoy !!
