Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned, I have never worked with java script before and I just need to clarify your response. Is this code that goes directly into my document? Or is this meant to open from a separate file (don't you love working with the clueless!). I'm a little confused because it includes the head, body, & their closing tags at the end. I tried this as written and it over-wrote my entire page. I tried taking sections (css in the head with the rest, java script in the head & the span with text section in the html body. That totally messed up the page (I am working with copies so can afford to mess up!)
I am using this on the navigation bar of a local church's site. When the mouse lands on the various items in the nav. bar, a box will come up with a couple of paragraphs of text giving a summary of the link. The visitor will have the option of clicking for more info, or, in some cases, following more links or ignoring.
Obviously, I need help. I thought it would be as easy as downloading the script but I should know better!
