    Hi,

    I'm looking for a way to display text info on the screen when the mouse
    moves over an <a> tag. Something along the lines like the box that displays
    the split categories in Quicken, or how the alt displays in
    src="images/display_report.gif" alt="CLICK HERE FOR RESULTS"

    I want to display a list of names and display their address and other info
    when you mouse over them.

    Any suggestions how to do this?

    Thanks,

    Doug

    Using "alt" text as a tooltip is only done by Internet Explorer, and is
    considered a bug of that browser by many people.

    The correct way of adding supplimentary information to page elements is
    using the "title" attribute. This is supported by almost every graphical
    browser, including Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox, Opera, Safari,
    Konqueror, etc.

    <a href="http://www.example.com/" title="Extra hint text">example</a>

    <img src="images/display_report.gif" alt="Results"
    title="Click here for results.">

    <p title="This is a paragraph.">Foo bar bat.</p>
