Is javascript the best option?

I have some business process flowcharts, created in Visio and 'Saved as Web Pages,' so those in our organization who do not have Visio can view the processes in a browser.

The web pages show the processes just as they appear in Visio with a starting point image and a line connecting it to the next point image, etc., etc.

I need a way for users to be able to hover over each image and have a window pop with a brief explanation of the process step over which the user is hovering. When the user moves the mouse off the image the instruction popup goes away; if the user hovers over another image the instructions for that image pop.

Is JS the best solution for this? If so, can someone post some code?

Thanks, RLN

Have you looked at using the Visio Viewer?

Title and alt tags work without any scripting at all. Otherwise search for "tooltips", there are many that do this.
