Status Bar Link Description

(Internet Explorer 6)

Are you looking for a way to spice up your links? This JavaScript code will help you do just that. You can display your link description in the status bar of your browser. When the mouse is placed over a link, the link description will be viewed in the status bar.

Look within the lower left-hand side of the status bar to view the link description.

Copy and paste the following code into the HTML portion of your web page where you would like the link to appear:

<A HREF="" onmouseover="window.status='Your text description'; return true" onmouseout="window.status='';return true">Your linked text</a>
