  1. This solution would be for the poor amongst us who cannot afford
    Macro~, er, Adobe's flash program. ;)

    I'd like to design a "think cloud" (w/transparent background) and have
    it pop up when someone does a mouse over on this person's head -- you
    know, as if he were thinking this thought.

    Is such a thing even possible without flash? Thanks folks!

    <img src="somepic.jpg" onMouseOver='popImg('anotherpic.jpg')' id='someid'>

    <script type='text/javascript' language='javascript'>

    function popImg(picname) {

    //top pop up another browser window with the pic

    window.open('http://server/directory/'+picname,'windowname','width=400;
    height=400');

    //to change an existing image....
    document.getElementById('someid').src=picname;

    //to make some hidden division popup
    //Somewhere in the html...
    //<div id='somediv' style='position: absolute; top: 100px; left: 100px;
    display: none;'></div>

    divid = document.getElementById('somediv').
    divid.style.display = 'block';
    divid.innerHTML='<img src="'+picname+'">';


    }

    </script>

  3. Wow, PCX thanks. Let me fool around with it a bit and I'll report
    back.

    Can I ask also:
    Do I have any control over the popup as to:
    1. Appearing ON TOP OF any other frames, images etc.
    2. Transparency

    ?

    I'm just trying to achieve a lovely little think cloud, complete with
    puffy edges, that looks like it just shows up and sits on top of
    (anything else) that it may overlap anecdotally.

    A nearly identical question was asked in another group:

    http://tinyurl.com/yf545q

    and a responder gave (I thought) a great solution. Here's an adaptation
    of his response that you might like:

    I didn't invent the solution, I'm merely passing it on to you with a
    few tiny changes.
