Links with Images showing on hover

HTML & CSS Scripts

Author's Comments

Look carefully for specific instructions

Here it is, the finished code. Works for me on both FF and IE6. The only problem with it is that in IE the links have some sort of background color. If you erase the coloring the code wont work. I have no clue why, as I just started messing with CSS 2 days ago. If you are going to use it I would only recommend changing the color values, since so far if you leave them blank the code fails. You can change all the coordinates to your liking, that doesn't seem to give a problem.

Also, do not delete the z-indexes. Change them to match your layout if it uses them. If you leave them out when your layout uses them the code wont work right in FF

Well, that is all I can think of, good luck :)

Cool, but do you know how to do the reverse? I have an image on my blog linked to a different site and I'd like to have TEXT show when you rollover the image so that users know where they are being re-directed. I need it for blogger!! Help!!

I'm very interested in this, can somebody explain it better? Does this work for myspace? How would I create a list of links that show a popup image when you hover them? HALP

"The only problem with it is that in IE the links have some sort of background color."

I changed the background color into "transparent" - on my myspace profile it works fine :)

but now the next problem - instead of text I wanna have an image which you can hover and a bigger image appears...
is that possible???
