Hi, Dear everyone:
I have a question for you. I am just wondering if it is possible to pop up a message(just like in MS products) displaying some instruction when a cursor moves on a link (in a web page) but such message will be automatically gone if the cursor moves away. I appreciate it very much for any kind of help.
Have a nice weekend.

The HTML 4.01 specification suggests using the "title" attribute in the link:
<a href="http://www.ibm.com" title="Big Blue">IBM</a>
This works in Internet Explorer 5.5: if you move the mouse over the link and stop, it displays the title text in a popup. Netscape 4.75 doesn't appear to do anything with it.

Try doing a popup in JavaScript. I have something nice that way that I lifted from someone else's site.
Go to http://www.mousetech.com and mouse over the operating system names.
