I am writing a jsp page with books.
How can I implement a tooltip with book's amazon page (in small size of course) every time the users hover over the book's image?
Thank you.

<div id="categoryLeftColumn">

    <c:forEach var="category" items="${categories}">

        <c:choose>

Never mind, I wrapped the image tag with a simple anchor tag and everything works fine.
Thank you for helping me on this.
