Parker,
Is there any way you could code javascript rollovers that display what the icons for a post do? I'm taking about the icons that appear in a person's post that show their homepage, user details, email...that stuff. Sometimes I don't know what the icon is and I don't want to click on it.
Just an idea.

If you hold the pointer over the icon you get a Tooltip telling you the function.

Ummm...what's a tooltip Rob? All I get is the URL of the page that would be accessed when I click on the button.

If you set the pointer of your mouse on top of the icon you will get a pop up box that says what that icon is for. So if you put your mouse pointer on the icon next to the house icon it will say "Click Here for the Profile for xxx" and so forth.

Or Netscape 4.x or IE 5 on the mac.
How is it you've implemented this?

Oh, I see....I just tried it using Internet Explorer on a PC and the little tip works. Works in NS on the PC as well.
Guess the mac users are SOL.
