Want to "pop up" or "float" a description box above the "blogname" (6 posts)

    and that probably makes no sense.... anyway, what I want to do is have enough of a text area to display the "why" of my blog name when the "blogname" area in the header is hovered over.

    Without javascript, please and thanks.... anyone have any ideas?

    So, when the header is not hovered on, only the blogname visible, but the header is hovered on, the tagline appears?

    Well, sort of. When the header is hovered on, I want the "whole enchilada" to show (about 5 or 6 lines of text) - not the same thing as the tagline.

    Hmmm. Do you think I could do this with "Fancy Tooltips"?

    Well, fancy tooltips uses javascript, doesn't it. With CSS you would relative- or absolute-position the blogname block (which is the hyperlink) and put it on top of taglines. Put background color or background image on #blogname a block; therefore, conceal the taglines. In the CSS, set it something like #blogname a:hover not to have background; thus, revealing the taglines.

    Yeah, kinda like that.

    Oh, haven't actually look at Fancy Tooltips, didn't realize it was js.

    Thanks for the suggestions, alphoide, I'll play with what you posted there and see if I can figure it out.
