    balloon icon (6.0)

    i guess thats what they are called......we have a program that we want to make the balloon text box that appears when we put the pointer over a persons name stay longer or up until we move the mouse pointer.....it shows some info we need to copy but the box goes away in 3 or 4 seconds, i know you can move the currser back over to bring it up again. Is this possible, to change the tome it appears.

    The built-in functionality for the TITLE attribute is limited. To see how fancy you can get, check out the pop-up you get for Netflix listings. I don't know whether you have to register, but you can visit http://www.netflix.com/NewReleases and watch what happens when you hover over a title. Amazon.com's A9 search engine is somewhat similar, offering a pop-up with Alexa information: http://a9.com/wopr lounge (hover over the Site Info image). All of these use JavaScript, and you can check out the scripts on those sites or look around the web for others.

    Added: In the above comment I assumed you have control over the the web page. If you can't edit the page, then this doesn't help. Sorry!
