I'm looking for a routine or function that allows for floating popups when the pointer is placed over a hot spot on a client-side image map. Currently there are plenty of sources for code out there that show a popup when floating over a text URL or an IMG URL, but when putting a mouse pointer over an image map the same code does not work. Even when declaring the image map an OBJECT rather than just a basic <img>.

Is this something for which there is an off-the-shelf solution? I've checked dojo and jQuery but can't find what I'm looking for. I feel like I've seen this behavior out there but I don't remember where I saw it. Can this be investigated? We'll find a way to apply it to all of our image maps, but I need the code or routine or function call to get it done to begin with.


For example, I would want to be able to hover over any of these clickable links and have a small box popup with an image inside of it.
