Chandra,

Your code generates a drop down list in my IE 6. Don't you see anything on your side with IE 6?

Dan

Chandra,

Sorry, I didn't understand your question.

In HTML 4.0 the title attribute is among the 16 core attributes that you can apply to almost all the elements in both HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0. For some reason it doesn't work in IE 6. I also see it working in Fire Fox.

Regards,
Dan

Hello

I have a similar sort of question.
I want to show tooltip of options in the select tag. I am using the <select> and <options> tags. Is there any possibility of showing the option's data in tooltip?

Regards
Ansar

Sure, each time the value of the dropdown is changed, set the value of the <select>'s title attribute to the new value.

Ansar,

Sorry - I don't understand your question.

What do you mean by saying -

Is there any possibility of showing the option's data in tooltip?

I believe this wouldn't effect on your program but a mistake.
