creating tooltips - please help

Am creating a web site using dreamweaver. Does anyone know how I can create tooltips? I think I may have to use flash for this? Would appreciate some advice. thanks

It's quite easy to create tooltips, if I'm thinking of the same thing as you are, lamunu. I'm assuming you mean that when someone hovers their mouse over an image a little "text tip" will appear describing that image. To that you would use the ALT tag. As you're using Dreamweaver you can view the HTML content of your page in the Code view. Insert your image using the:

<IMG SRC="your_image.gif">

That will place the image on screen. To add the tooltip, use the ALT tag like this.

<IMG SRC="your_image.gif" ALT="This is my image">

Now when someone hovers their mouse over "your_image" the text "This is my image" will pop up, like a little "tooltip".

I hope that's what you meant, lamunu.
