    Default screen tips

    I want a script or brackets that will give me screen tips when specified links or text are hovered over.

    hey,

    you could try looking on the Dynamic Drives site under 'Links & Tooltips'...

    here's a cool one: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...tmltooltip.htm

    Also, take note of the 'Looking for such a script or service' forum... that would seem like a more appropriate place for you to have posted your thread.

    I hope this all helps.

    Peace out,

    .dog.

    Just set a title attribute on the element:
    Code:
    <!-- Link: -->
    <a title="Home Page" href="home.html">Home</a>
    
    <!-- Abbreviation: -->
    <abbr title="et cetera">&c.</abbr>
    
    <!-- Acronym: -->
    <acronym title="HyperText Markup Language">HTML</acronym>
    
    <!-- Text: -->
    <span title="my pet trout">Jim</span>
    This is more accessible than Javascript, and works just fine so long as you don't want to have style or images in the tooltip. If you do, it might be wise to use this as a backup (unset it using Javascript).

    Smile appreciated

    I appreciate you both giving me these tips. I did not see the javascript thing and I prefer to use the html one by twey. in event it is less of a hassle and i do not want to do much with it.

    What alt thing? Don't confuse alt and title. title is designed to carry some extra information that complements the element. alt is used to store information for use in case the element can't be displayed, for whatever reason.
