You will need to be more specific about the problem and provide example code, preferably a link to the problem page.

However, HTML already has a built in method for a 'hover option' for links. It is the title attribute, ex:


<a href="neat.htm" title="Check out this Neat Page">Neat Page</a>

If what you are looking for is an effect rather than a tool tip type thing, there is the css :hover pseudo class. The way this works is to put the effect in a stylesheet section in the head of your page, there are many effects you can use. This example makes the text bold when a link is hovered:


<style type="text/css">
a:hover {
font-weight:bold;
}
</style>
