While I was waiting for a reponse I kept looking around and found this one.
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/imagetooltip.htm

Heres a link to the page im working on
http://www.unreal-gfx.com/tfo/checkout2.php

As you can see, theres so many images that it takes some time to load, so thats why i want to use the mouseover. What I did on the site was made the border size 0 and and the font size 0px and both are black, but I really would like to just remove both of them.

Heres the current code im using

<script type="text/javascript">

Any tips on how to remove those would help.

Heres a link to the page im working on
http://www.unreal-gfx.com/tfo/checkout2.php

I like it, :thumbsup:



As you can see, theres so many images that it takes some time to load, so thats why i want to use the mouseover.

I presume that this don't change the loading time because with or without mouseover the size of your page will be the same. This way you can only move the moment when you load the content.

you can optimize for image size, see this link:

http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/wso.php?url=http://www.unreal-gfx.com/tfo/checkout2.php

and you can also use ajax, look to this links:

http://miniajax.com/
this one:
http://mondaybynoon.com/2006/03/27/suckerfish-hoverlightbox/
and demo:
http://www.mondaybynoon.com/examples/suckerfish_hoverlightbox/horizontal.html

this have the avantage that the content is loaded only on request.



What I did on the site was made the border size 0 and and the font size 0px and both are black, but I really would like to just remove both of them.

Any tips on how to remove those would help.
I wait an answer and if you still want dd solution I'll try to help you.

PS: in both cases I'll try to help, :)

best regards
