like you said, we may want some features that require it. You mentioned
would be to use the "title" attribute of the href tag. I created a little
one verse demo:
Do you mean something like that? I'm pretty sure all modern browsers support
the title mouseover thing, but I'm not 100% positive. Does it work on
Ns/Linux? It works on Mozilla/Win and IE 6. BTW, The links on the demo go
nowhere. I'm assuming we would have them go to a page with the
dictionary/lexicon definitions and/or a concordance type listing of other
occurrences of the same word.
by grace alone,
