HTML/ Java Question

Does anyone know how to do a cursor effect so that when you move over a certain portion of the screen it will bring up a box with say a word or something behind it, but if you go over a different picture, or part of the screen, a different word/box follows the cursor? I know, not a great description. Basically what I'm looking for can be seen here . Thanks.

For the webpage that you indicated if you look at the source code you will find your answer. The effect you are looking for is to change the image when you move your mouse over it. Basically you have 2 different images one when the mouse is not over the image and a different image when the mouse is over it.

It is HTML code called mouseover. Below is an excerpt of the code from the Sony page you indicated.

**********="rolloff('ecm-t115')" ***********="rollover('ecm-t115');" HREF="/SEL/consumer/ss5/office/accessories/businessmicrophones/ecm-t115.shtml"

IMG ALT="ECM-T115" SRC="/SEL/consumer/ss5/images/thumbs/ecm-t115_th.gif" WIDTH="60" HEIGHT="48" BORDER="0" HSPACE="1" VSPACE="1"

Good Luck!

Search for Javascript Image Rollover on google and you'll find many ways to do it.
