Hi all,

I have several sections in a text, and I would like to highlight each section as mouse rolls over.. I've tried to span the fragments of text but it doesn't work in my jsp...any suggestions??

Please post your script and an example of your html where you want the text to change

Ditto purplepixie,
& does it have to be 'onmouseover' css hover may be easier to implement

Hi! thank you. The span is working now with this:
<p align="center"><font face="Arial" size="2" onmouseover="this.style.color='#ff9933'" onmouseout="this.style.color=''" color="#000080"><strong>On

mouse over change the color</strong></font></p>


but this is not really what I want..

I'me reading a html text into an iframe. And I can search for words which are highlighted in the iframe text.

The goal would be splitting my source text in sections or fragments,amd pre-select the text fragments of interest and as soon as I roll the mouse over it the program knows where to highlight or hover the pre-selected fragments of text.

and besides that, I have other iframes with text related to the text in the iframe where I roll the mouse over, and I want the other frame sections, pre-selected, related to the section I have the mouse over to highlight as well. Maybe something like pre-tag the text so that the program knows where to highlight...
