Pardon the CC but you seem to get digest. ;-)
advise you to let your visitors know that all they will see
3. The funda of the "pop-up when the mouse goes over text" is simple.
You are trapping the "event" of the "mouse" going over a certain,
definite "area". In the case of the scripts that you have found,
this "area" happens to be certain string of text.
modify the "area" to the image map "regions". If it makes it any
easier, you could even make those "regions" as <a href="#"></a>
links and use the onMouseOver with it.
Rest, ask Mr. Peter B. Over to you Peter... ;)
PS: Ran the first sentence through MS Grammer check. Guess what it
said ? LOL
