      "title" is what you should use. IE supports title - but it doesn't support
      ABBR. Sigh. One somewhat ugly solution is to nest a SPAN inside the the
      ABBR and use title on that too. You can do that with JS if you prefer.

      But I think your problem wasn't with ABBR but more general. Then title
      works fine.

        Hello Lee, Marco, and Lotta,

        Thanks for the help. I'll be using "title" for pop-ups because I'm sure some
        of our users have JavaScript disabled. I am glad to know about the JavaScript
        Source site, however, because I want to learn how to write JS.

        Best regards,

            Those are not popups. They are called Tool Tips. Bruce
