What I'd like to have happen with the code below is that on mouse over, the text appears in white, within a green box with a red border. Why doesn't this work? Like it says above...I am just trying to understand this better.
What I want to have happen is have that text block appear next to the cursor when a user mouses over the link. It's the text block that I would like to have a colored background, not the link itself. I guess I'd like it to be a like a little "tip" box with the text I have in the top post.
Another question...should I have posted this in DHTML? All of these different types of formatting and scripting seem to be pretty well intertwined...and I just wasn't sure where to post this. If it's in the wrong place, I apologize.

Use CSS to draw the boxes and control the colors with the a:hover as recommended by NogDog
if you are looking to use images, make an image with the different looks you want for the button all stacked on top of each other then have CSS 'move' the image if they mouse over it. I can explain further if you need.
