    Mouse Rollover Link message.

    I would like to create link rollover where it mouse rolls over a link and says "Under Construction". Please advise how I can do this?

    I can do this:
    Code:
    <a href="www.mysite.com" onmouseover="alert('Under Construction');return false;">hi</a>
    But would rather have a message text pop up without the user having to hit the 'Ok' button.

    Use title attribute to present advisory/supplemental information about an element:
    <a href="page.html" title="This page is still under construction">Link</a>

    Better yet, do not link unfinished pages to your site in the first place.
