    i want to know if there is a javascript or something for something on my website. i have a series of pictures, and i would like to know if its possible for text to appear under the thumbnails in a blank white area, when the mouse goes over the pictures. i want to use this so that i can put descriptions of the pictures. if you need me to elaborate, or don't really understand, just ask more questions. here's my website(go to pictures) http://hometown.aol.com/superman7gsuperman7g@aol.com

    Sam,
    Try to get your hands on Macromedia's Fireworks program. Using this tool, you can easily accomplish what you need to do.

    Try finding it at: http://htmlgoodies.com/
    It's the best Html / Javascript site I've found yet. Good luck!

    Sam,
    There are various ways to do it, but I think the easiest is to use a style-sheet (CSS). The following should do the trick. Just copy and paste into a new html file, and change the link reference, image name, and text label to suit your purposes.
    Code:
    
    
    
       Example File - Hover Link
       
    A {
       background-color : White;
       color : White;
    }
    A:HOVER {
       color : Black;
    }
       
    
    
       [URL="index.html"]
    Graphic Description Text[/URL]
    
    
    
    If I may be so bold, I recommend looking at some of the excellent HTML editors. Notepad is a poor excuse for a text editor, much less a HTML editor. Check out Arachnophilia (freeware, http://www.arachnoid.com/arachnophilia/index.html),
