    hover over link balloon...

    i am sure you have seen them all over the net, places where when the page is fully loaded words like: Microsoft, Gateway, exc.... become links that when you hover over them you get an ad or definition or somtthing. how do i do that in html/javascript?

    here is an example of a page that has what i want:
    http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/Q_20754430.html
    (the words: Access, program, windows XP all turn into links with a balloon)

    i only want to know how to create a balloon that can contain lots of data. this is for a CGI script i am making, that when you hover over a day it displays what is going on in that day. but "title" propterty is not good enough, because it cant hold verry many characters, i need it to atleast hold 150-200 characters
    thanks for you help

    What you want is called a "tooltip", a great source is dynamic drive.
