    Hi I have some links on a page that I would like to display some more
    information with when the mouse is hovered over them. It is possible for a
    regular <A HREF> type link to display a tooltip and if so how?

    Thanks

    Look up the title attribute. In fact, here:

    use the title attribute.
    for what it's worth, users won't look at/ notice them
