Howdy! I've built a system for my work (ticket.stat221.org) using PHP and MySQL. Currently, using CSS, on the main page I have info boxes that pop up to let the viewer know which link to use to report a variety of problems.

This CSS method is ugly and doesn't work entirely the way I want.

How could I use the onmouseover() to replicate this information boxes so hovering over the link displays it?

Thank you very much.

BTW, the time to say "thanks" is afterwards, not beforehand which gives the impression that you take other people's assistance for granted. Or as British politician Neil Kinnock put it, "Don't belch before you have had the meal." Prefer to use "please" beforehand and if you find a response helpful then you can use the "Thank You For This Post" button.

Thank you very much for both the information and the tip. I usually thank in advance to thank people for even reading my posts, but I understand your advice and will apply it.
