          Funny, they all work for me. Must be because I use Mozilla.

          Let me check...

          This one works perfectly in Mozilla (using "hover") and in a buggy way
          in Internet Explorer (you have to click the keywords, and then, the
          _first_ keyword clicked does nothing. The following ones do, however --
          even if you go back to click the original keyword)

          http://www.info.com.ph/~etan/w3pantheon/style/popupnotes.html
          This one does not work in IE, and explains the reason: IE does not
          understand "hover" for <span>

          http://www.info.com.ph/~etan/w3pantheon/style/sidenotes.html
          This one works all right - it just doesn't do any fancy hide-and-show
          thing with the notes (they are always visible, just as on a book).

          http://www.web-graphics.com/mtarchive/000913.php (which contains a link to)
          http://andreas.web-graphics.com/footnotes/index.html
          This also works only on Mozilla and Safari (and maybe recent versions
          of Opera), because it relies on CSS3.

          Conclusion: although those are interesting exercises in layout, using
          <div>, <span> and CSS to achieve very nice effects, three of them aren't
          really practical for "real-world" HTML coding, since the majority of
          users are still held back by IE's limitations. My mistake, I plucked
          those pages from my bookmarks without really rechecking them for IE
          compatibility.

          Note, however, that you can still borrow some of the ideas and adapt
          them to IE's limitations.

          Message 4 of 6 , Jan 20, 2005
            Thank you Marcelo. An older IE too.

            Now I'm in the process of updating some files which require rewrites to a small and huge
            extent. More or less the images will stay, and have new text attached.

            So I developed a clip to show image tags as acquired already around which new text could be
            put. It identifies in a rough and ready way img tags and does the job. It takes my template of
            an HTML file and puts the tags in the right place, allowing viewing.

            The clip had origins in the one that identifies and isolates URLs.

            What I'd really like to do is scan all the images in a folder, and have each one come in to an
            HTML page one by one with the height, width and border="0" information ready to view. Then
            the text could be put around those that seemed relevant, rather than those previously used. I
            can sort of see where to begin to do it, but cannot do it.

            This is what I did, and it works on the open HTML page.

              Hello Adrian,

              Over a year ago, I had a requirement similar to yours, but I am not so
              ambitious as you! Instead, I purchased the EasyImager software from Fookes,
              the author of NoteTab. It is probably more than you need, but it might be
              worth a look. See it at>>>

                I've been playing with this and I like it a lot.
                I had been looking for a javascript help popup, but I think that this is
                much better.
                Thank you!
