Tool Tips

A nice feature of Internet Explorer is the ability to show “tool tips,” those little messages that appear when you hold your cursor over something important. It's a handy way to show a little extra information to users without them having to take an action. When designing your site, it's important to provide the user with whatever navigational cues you can; it makes your site easier to use and keeps the user from ever getting lost. Script 15.3 shows how to use DHTML to create the same user feedback effect for all browsers. Figure 15.5 shows the result.

Script 15.3. Create tool tips in any DHTML-capable browser with this script.
