Can someone tell me why the below code doesn't seem to work?

I have seen the "window.status" set by JavaScript in other pages I have
visited, but when I try it,
it doesn't seem to work.  The following code snippet is what I am using.
zStatus is an associative array
where "zID" is the index.  When I run this and mouse over the link, what
shows up in the status bar
is the link to the location (i.e.,
"http://www.somewhere.com/somepage.html"), not the value of the array.

If I use an "alert()" the display the values of either zStatus array of
window.status, it displays the
appropriate value.

Thanks,
Wayne

window.status='';
