How to Do a Text Rollover Callout with HTML
On a web page, I want to simulate the "Comment" feature in MS Word, where the text has a yellow background, and when the mouse is moved over the text, the comment pops up in a box.
The closest I've been able to come is the following:
<A HREF="" TITLE="Technically, a comma
belongs here, but because
the second clause is short,
the comma isn't necessary
and disturbs the flow."><span style="background-color: yellow">a woman and</span></A>
But there are two problems: The target ("a woman and") is underlined, and if the target is clicked on, the user is sent somewhere else.
Any suggestions on how to get the effect I want without the underlining and without it being a link to somewhere else?
I'd like to keep it simple if possible, using HTML alone.
