Tool-tip pop-ups? Use "title=" in your tags
by Dianne Reuby

If you've created web pages, you've probably used the ALT as
part of your IMG tag. When your visitor puts their cursor
over the image, a pop-up "tool-tip" gives them essential

You can get exactly the same effect on other web objects,
using "title".

Here are some examples.

a target="_blank" href="news.html" title="Click on this link to get the
latest local and national news, weather, and traffic
table border="0" title="Choose a category for information
on stock levels, availability, and suppliers"

ul title="Click on a topic to get full details of the
services and resources that we provide to all our members,
affiliates and associates"

These "tool-tips" can give valuable help to your visitors,
and make your page look neater - you don't need to have long
explanations on display. By including them in a title tag,
your visitors will see them when they need them.

They'll work in Internet Explorer version 4 onwards.
Netscape version 4 and later should show them correctly, but
I haven't been able to test all versions.

Happy site building!
