1) Script Title:
Textual tooltip Script
2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/linkinfo.htm
3) Describe problem:

Hi all

This is a problem so to speak, i was just looking at this script and wanted to use it on my site, but then i was wondering if there was a similar script or perhaps a way to work this script that would also help my SEO.

theres a lot of info that can go into this script, but it would be perfect for me if it was also crawled by spiders.

any ideas?
thanks
james

The obvious solution is to use the title attribute of the <a> element to store the text:
<a
title="Some tooltip"
href="../dynamicindex1/index.html"
onmouseover="changetext(this.title);"
>
Menus and Navigation Systems
</a>

hi

thanks for the reply but i just tested that idea, but unfortunetely it appears no different, spiders must not crawl <a> titles -

any other ideas anyone?

There's not much else you can do, in that case. title is apt for the type of text stored here, since it provides additional information that supplements the link; if spiders choose to ignore it, then that's no problem of yours.
