Hello everyone. Got a question that hopefully someone can help me out
with. Currently, I'm using a menu script from DynamicDrive.com
([url]http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/tabmouseover.htm[/url]) that when the
mouse runs over a link a description is displayed.

I would like to modify this code so when the mouse went over one of
the links it would bring up the normal description and say a different
description/caption in a different location. The only problem that
arises for me is that I have no idea how to do it. Could someone
please tell me what I should add to make it work correctly? Thanks
for any help at all. BTW, here is the code:

<!--Links used to initiate the sub menus. Pass in the desired submenu
index numbers (ie: 0, 1) -->
<a href="http://www.javascriptkit.com"
onMouseover="showit(0)">JavaScript Kit</a> | <a
href="http://freewarejava.com"
onMouseover="showit(1)">Freewarejava</a><br>

<!-- Edit the dimensions of the below, plus background color-->
<ilayer width=400 height=32 name="dep1" bgColor="#E6E6FF">
<layer name="dep2" width=400 height=32>
</layer>
</ilayer>
<div id="describe" style="background-color:#E6E6FF;width:400px;height:32px"
onMouseover="clear_delayhide()" onMouseout="resetit(event)"></div>
