    Hi everyone: I agree with Graham: pop-ups = bad... And which is better anyway? To provide the learners with a no-effort-required pop-up or to get them to work

      Hi everyone:

      I agree with Graham: pop-ups = bad... And which is better anyway? To provide the learners with a no-effort-required pop-up or to get them to work out meaning from context...?

      No effort required by the learner, that is. For a lot of extra effort for the developer, you get less return on investment for the learner...

      popups annoy everyone, such hidden information
      must be under control of the reader and not disturb
      if unwanted.

      A useful effect can be done with a link, <a ... title:"text">,
      and an alt tag with an image <img ... alt="text">
      There are a few more ways doing this with
      javascript, e.g. mouseover.

      Flash is a bad choice in almost every situation,
      in my opinion.

      A great system a few years ago was "rich text",
      does anyone have a record of this? Some dictionary
      systems link words to explanations.

      Can anyone suggest a nice easy way of doing pop-ups online eg. for vocab meanings when you mouse over a word? We can do it in html (Dreamweaver), but maybe there's a better, easier way using something else - Flash for example?

      Ta,
      Karen
