I've created an ImageMap using Map <map> and Area <area> tags but want a more robust mouse-over text ability than the 'Title' property, which doesn't allow (that I'm aware of) one to change the general characteristics of the text displayed such as the font or background color. I've seen an interesting article at http//www.madaboutstyle.com/tooltip2.html which seems to do what I want except it uses anchor <a> tags instead of area tags. Any ideas on how I can get this more robust mouse-over text using CSS and an ImageMap?
