This is how I do it....

In Response To: Re: Mr. Giraffe, Google & Me.... (Mel. White)

(coming up at the end)

>> how you do it. They should recognize a simple mouseover when they see it.

I hope you're right -- and I'm thinking you are. Absolutely *nobody* has addressed the "tooltip" part of my question, though I keep re-asking it in my replies to their replies, but so far the consensus on two boards is that it happened because I changed the name of my page from

...com/goto/index/mammals/375.htm

to

...com/mammals/giraffe.shtml

I decided to do it with a permanent "We have moved" link on the original page because I was a little (a lot) uncomfortable using 500+ "301 redirects." That was probably a mistake.

What surprised me is not only the fact that 375.htm wasn't replaced in Google with giraffe.shtml -- but the fact that the original 375.htm COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. That's why I made the immediate connection with "hidden text."

I suppose Google could catch up with itself at some point and list the new page, but I'm not going to take a chance. I've changed the name back to the original and I'll just live with a less-than-perfect filing system and do without the convenience of .shtml pages and my Wonderfoot repeating-text script (sob!).

Like I said -- no harm done, because people weren't finding Mr. Giraffe when he was on Google page 41 anyhoo, and I'm not messing with the critters on page 1 until I have this down to a science.

I know nothing about CODE -- I just copy and paste. Do you see anything dangerous in this code?? I replaced all < with [...
------------------------------------

IN THE HEAD SECTION:

[style type="text/css"]

#dhtmltooltip{
position: absolute;
width: 200px;
border: 2px solid black;
padding: 5px;
background-color: #99CCFF;
visibility: hidden;
z-index: 100;
/*Remove below line to remove shadow. Below line should always appear last within this CSS*/
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color=gray,direction=135);
}

[/style]

------------------------------

IN THE BODY:

[div id="dhtmltooltip"][/div]

[script type="text/javascript"]

/***********************************************
* Cool DHTML tooltip script- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code
***********************************************/

(Not repeating the whole long thing here cuz that's probably violating copyright or something, but as far as I can tell, dynamicdrive.com is a very legitimate website...)

---------------------------------

THE ACTUAL ITEM ON THE PAGE:

[a href="javascript:void(null)" onMouseover="ddrivetip('[font face=Arial]INSIDE STUFF HERE[/font]')";
onMouseout="hideddrivetip()"]VISIBLE LINK STUFF HERE[/a]

----------------------------------

Thanks for looking!

Luv,

MaaMaw

NOTICE TO SCUMBEEZLES
(you know who you are... you scream "Foul!" when the truth comes out)
        PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT.  It has been done before, but never successfully.  In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
        If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
        NEWS FLASH:  I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday.  I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish.  I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?).  I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!" 
        Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

        Although we may, from time to time, monitor or review discussions, postings and the like on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, we are under no obligation to do so.  We are not responsible or liable for any claim arising from the content of any such discussions or postings or for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information contained within such locations on the Site.
        You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane materials or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.  You are likewise prohibited from posting any false claims against any company or individual.  We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.
        By posting messages and/or content on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, you give permission for Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications to display, distribute and use the posting and content for publication, advertising, promotion, excerption or example. You grant Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications complete, perpetual, but non-exclusive rights to use, archive, reproduce, adapt, modify, distribute, sub-license, repurpose, rework, compile, or offer for sale or resale the messages, postings or content appearing on this site in whole or in part, throughout the world and universe, on a royalty-free basis without remuneration.  If you cannot accept or agree with the terms of service for this website and discussion board, you are advised not to post on this board.
        In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
        And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
