:>Well, Netscape has a JavaScript mechanism you could use. Here's a sample:
:>
:><A HREF="" onMouseOver="self.status='A design methodology in which integrated circuits are built from a library of pre-designed building blocks. (Click for full definition)';return true">

It's a pity that Netscape doesn't recognize the TITLE attribute to
the <A> tag.  If they did, that and an DEFINE or EXPLANATION or FN
could be used to do the popup, and you wouldn't have to muck with
all that stupid messy javascript, and your documents might acutally
be useful to any browser that comes on the market, whether they
support javascript or not.

Pity that.
