I have a textarea containing some text. Is there any way to display tooltip on a word (or select the word) when mouse is hovered?

Are you using any javascript framework like jQuery or Ext JS?

I am in the beginning. So using pure js. If jQuery or Ext JS needed I will use it. Can you please tell me is it possible?
