Subject: Re: 13.0206 friendly Javascript for critical edns

For an implementation of notes in frames not requiring Javascript, see
the Prothalamion <http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~rbear/proframe.html> or
the Lady of May <http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~rbear/may/mayframe.html>.

But I'm hoping to avoid frames. It's my understanding, after
conversation with techies, that in recent versions of Internet Explorer
one can mouse over text and get a cursor popup (as opposed to a browser
window or frame) without using an anchor, whereas Netscape requires an
anchor. I'd like to see simple glossing appear as the mouse pointer
reaches a glossed word or phrase, then disappear as the mouse pointer
rolls away, and I'd like to do this without sprinkling anchors all over.
Is there a way to do that yet?
