View Full Version : Alternatives to script (not working in Safari)

1) Script Title: Show Hint

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex16/showhint.htm

3) Describe problem: I love this very simple solution to otherwise having too much text on a page (esp on our corporate website). The page where I used it can be found here:


I'm not a Mac user and tested against browsers I had available. All was fine. Now getting reports this functionality isn't supported by Safari.

Any work arounds you'd suggest?

When (and if!) you can, thanks.

You may want to take a look at some tooltip scripts on DD, which behave similarly to Show Hint: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/

Thank you. Just what I did!

I found one I liked very much; but, then, Firefox wouldn't run it. I ended up going with a "simple" solution using the Title attrib inside of a <map> <area> tag. Don't have much control over the display, but the durn thing works!

You're terrific to take time to respond.

All the best.
