I am trying to write pop up "help" text for an onMouseOver event. It works in IE but not in Netscape. Does anyone know of something I can do to make it work in Netscape?

My meory is a bit foggy on all the browser incompatibility issues since I usually didnt solve them till after 2am.. but I believe that NS doesn't respond to onmouseover, it will respond to onmouseclick I believe. It depends on if it is an image or link that your trying to do this on as nothing seems to be consistant between IE and NS nor with compatability to the specs...
If you post the code it might give me some better ideas as to what your doing.

There are a lot of different things between IE annd NS. For example, NS support onmouseover only for <a> that have href argument.
if you go to www.faqts.com, to programming - langages - JavaScript, you probably will found what you want
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
