    Hovering Text Change (XP Professional)

    I'd like to know how I can make the text that I have on the screen, (It's in French), change into a text in English. It's for a website that I'm making for my French Class. And no one can understand the French, so I want to make it so it will make it easier to understand.

    At what point do you want it to change language and how?
    Do you want the text to change from French to English by clicking on it?
    Do you want the translation to appear underneath?

    Or are you saying you are looking for a translation? If so, try BabelFish

    I want it so that when the mouse goes over the text, the English-translation will pop-up under the words, or where the words are. Doesn't matter to me, as long as the words appear on the page close enough to the text for my classmates to understand what it is.

    You should be able to use a bit of JavaScript to do what you want - see these two examples from the javaScript Source:
    Telephone Book
    Animated Tooltip
    To get smart 'tooltips' - such as what is used here when your mouse hovers over a navigation icon - check out overLIB.

    You also can use the SPAN tag and the TITLE attribute:

    <span title="Parlez-vous francais?">There is a message when you mouse over this sentence.</span>
