    so i am still learning on how to use html snippets within iweb. but here is my problem. i have links that i have set up normally, but i also want to have some rollover text as well. example: say you have a link to apple.com and when the cursor goes over it, people get a quick little text box saying something, like "here is apples home page" whatever.... and if they click on it, it takes them to apples page, but if they don't and roll off of it the message goes away. any help would be great thanks.

    That's commonly referred to as a tooltip. It's done with the title attribute for the link. I don't have iWeb in front of me so I'm not sure where you may be able to set this, but you can look around for a title field for the link in the Inspector.

    <a href="http://www.apple.com/" title="here is Apple's home page">apple.com</a>
