I have done a good deal of HTML page development for various different
reasons, and have found this idea to be useful in many cases.  I propose an
addition to HTML 3.0 that would allow small windows to pop up when the mouse
is overtop of some keywords, containing some information.  Example:

<body>
This is a new feature of
<window show="HyperText Markup Language">HTML</window>.
</body>

OR

<body>
This is a new feature of
<a html="HyperText Markup Language" window>HTML</a>.
</body>

Rendered

This is a new feature of HTML
                             \_________________________
                             |HyperText Markup Language|
                              ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There are many times when this would be useful to present information.  From
my experience in programming, it does not seem a difficult task to add such
a feature in a browser.  The tag is simple and aids the general puprpose of
HTML.  I would appresiate any feedback and discussion on it's possibilities
or functionality.
