Didn't know what to search for this--apologies if it exists somewhere on the board.
Now, with links, I know you can supply a title="" attribute to them, to get a tooltip to appear on them if you leave the mouse hovering on them for a short period. What I am trying to do is somewhat similar.
Basically, imagine that you have a column of links, and a large space to the right of them (the background of which is defined elsewhere, but links' descriptions still would show here).
Some code demonstrating the type of effect I'm grasping for is below:
Now, my problem is this:
-- DTD removed for space --
<a href="/site1">Link 1<span>
<a href="/site2">Link 2<span>
This does not work in Internet Explorer, at all. Links still function; however, the text that should be appearing over in that right area does not.
Could anyone please point me in the proper direction to resolve this, if such can be done? I'm only shooting for IE6 and Mozilla compatibility, though the more the merrier.
Thank you for your time.
