    Hyperlink Title

    What determines the font and point size of the hyperlink title? Can it be modified in any way? I'd like to make it larger, and perhaps add bold and italic.

    Thanks.

    If you mean the 'tooltip' text, you cannot change the formatting from within HTML. You can create more complex tooltips through API's, but that is the only way I know how to change the formatting within a tooltip.

    In addition to Drew's suggestion, you could try using the onMouseover event to write text to a new layer (or simply display a hidden layer) as a way to present a "rich text" prompt for a link or field. Think of those ads that slide down when you visit the Amazon.com home page. I've never programmed layers myself, but I've viewed the code for some menus built that way and would recommend you have some headache remedies close at hand. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Perhaps something like this script will do what you want? Or maybe animation for the tooltip...

    What I'm getting at here is that there are a lot of scripts out there that can modify the appearance of hyperlink tooltips. Check those out for some ideas. In addition to the two links I posted above you might also consider DynamicDrive and 24Fun for scripts.
