I wanted to do some popon windows when someone hovers over something on my page...

new_window = open("page.html", "displayWindow", "toolbar=no,width=600,height=300,directories=no,status=no,scrollbars=no,resize=no,menubar=no");
I can do that by opening a popup using the abovecode but it opens in a separate page... I want it to hover on top of the same page some thing like on http://m.www.yahoo.com/ when you hover your mouse on the side links, a new window comes on top..nothing so animated and fancy like that but just getting a new window on top of the same page

any help doing this with html, css, or javascript (any client side stuff) would be great!

thanks in advance!

Look for ajax code!

i am glad you didn't say something like "look for web programming"

thats not a popup(new window) but a part of the page like a div thats positioned to look like a popup something like light box. its easy to make that effect with jquery .there are probably a lot of tutorials just on that topic. try searching google or the jquery plugin base for "tooltip"
