Hotspot hover instead of hyperlink

On my website I have a map, which I would like to have several hotspots on. Rather than link these hotspots to other webpages, I would like a description of the area to show as text when the user hovers over each area. Like picture descriptions show when you hover over pictures. Is there any way of doing this, and if so how? Thank you.

RE: Hotspot hover instead of hyperlink

Creating a Hotspot in Frontpage might help as well as How Coordinates are Chosen in an Image Map.  When you mouse over, you can simply use the title attribute


<map name="FPMap0" id="FPMap0">
<area href="home.htm" title="Description Here" shape="rect" coords="7, 9, 51, 40" />
<area href="faqs.html" title="Description Here" shape="rect" coords="58, 9, 90, 40" />
<area href="contact.htm" title="Description Here" shape="rect" coords="101, 9, 136, 40" />
<img alt="Image bar" src="images/image-bar.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 48px" usemap="#FPMap0" />
Dynamic Drive offers a few others options as well that might guarantee a little mouseover
