    Hello, I need help with some script. Let's assume that I have a html
    paragraph containing tags a:

    .... ble ble <a id='link1' href='#'>link1</a> ...
    <a ...> </a>...

    and I want to write the script which will be displaying the div (I
    don't know wheater this div element should exist staticaly or it
    should be created dynamicly by onMouseOver event) and the left upper
    corner of this div will be displayed in the point when I move the
    mouse on the element <a>. I also expect that this script will be
    showing different information acording to the id filed for the a tags
    (for example div with content 'you move above a with id: link1')

    css :
    a { position: relative }
    a span { display none; position: absolute; border: 1px solid;
    background:#ffc; top: 0; left: 0; text-decoration: none}
    a:hover span { display: block; z-index: 99; }

    <a href="#" id="link1">link 1
    <span>You move above a 'A' with id = 'link1'</span></a>

    There is a nice javascript for mouseovers called boxover.js. See what
    happens when you move over the elements in (It
    stops when you click "Volgende opg." - which is the normal thing to do on
    this page. It is for training Dutch conjugations, but that's irrellevant
    here.) The title and text of the tooltips are placed in the html elements as
    follows: <tag title="header=[ ..your header text...] body=[ ... your body
    text, which may contain html elements ...]"> ... </tag>.
    If you can't find a download site for boxover, take the script from above
    link at /data/wwBoxover.js.

    thx Tom, I were looking exactly the same thing as you show me by this
    link, but I'm interesting not in using such script written by someone
    else but to write similar script :)
