Same Old Story

Jeesh. Still can’t find good code that’ll effectively provide “mouseover” help tips across platforms and browsers. The idea is to simply hover the mouse pointer over a link on a web page, and a new layer appears providing additional information about that link’s destination. Erik uses javascript to do it for his titles and “read more” links over on NSLog();, and it works pretty much across the board (except for MSIE on OSX or Netscape 4.x on Windows).

These javascript and pure css methods work okay, but not well enough.

Hrmph. I wish I was a web developer.
