    In FrontPage 2000, you will need to manually insert the:


    Alt="tool tip text value here" attribute in the <area> tag in HTML view. The <area> tag for each of the hot spots in HTML should look something like:

    <area alt="click here for tips" coords="294, 115, 358, 145" shape="rect" href="http://www.jezza.co.uk/tips.htm">

    To make it available for Firefox users <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> you may want to add:

    <area alt="click here for tips" title="click here for tips" coords="294, 115, 358, 145" shape="rect" href="http://www.jezza.co.uk/tips.htm">


    Good luck
    Jerry

    Hmm, thanks for the reply... I must not have conveyed my intents clearly since after following your advice I was prompted to add a URL to the hotspot [img]/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif[/img]

    What do I need to do in order to get "tool tips" to appear over different parts of a picture? Do I make the requested URL refer to the same page?

    Thanks for being patient with me and, say, if you know of a site or a page that does what I'm trying to do, perhaps I could peek at the code (?)

    I'll have a look around but could you refine to:


    <area alt="Here is my picture" coords="294, 115, 358, 145" shape="rect" href="#">

    This could trick the browser to think there is a link.

    In the meantime I'll hunt around for you.

    At first I couldn't see why I needed a URL, but now I see new possibilities!

    The 'alt' stuff will do the trick, so thanks for hanging in there with me!

    No problems

    I began to doubt myself, so ran off to check......yep this should work

    Try it with the additional title="whatever" and all us Firefoxers will be very happy so that we can see what you intend. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks again and, yes, I'll add the 'title' part.

    Say, I've tried the "percent-zero-A" to get an empty line/line break in the tool tip, but all I see is the % 0 A all together.

    What did I miss?

    <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> I don't think there is a way, unless you try this:
    <pre><area coords="294, 115, 358, 145" shape="rect" href="#" alt="Here is my picture:
    In 2000: It was a church with no roof
    In 2005: It was a church with a roof"></pre>


    These are hard carriage returns. I am running out of time before my New Year party but it "may" help. It will show in the alternative text if the image is shown but I am not sure if the tooltip will show it.

    Have a look at this <post:=537,025>post 537,025</post:> and associated links that I asked recently which talks about a similar problem
