Display top few lines of text on hovering your mouse on a word (link)?


I am wondering if there exists a macro or any workaround possible to get a pop-up when I hover my mouse on a term which is a page itself. Let's say, there is a page titled as Page-A, now on some other page (Page-B), I have mentioned Page-A's link and when I hover my mouse over Page-A (term) then it gives me a pop-up with  brief text description of Page-A.

Please let me know your thoughts!

You can try using something the a Qtip library which lets you add pop ups over links. You may need to create a custom macro which creates a link and also adds the attribute that the library uses to display the hover text. 


I will check out the solution over this weekend. Thanks for posting! smile
