    Here is what I'd like:

    To have one main image on a page, with several hotspots. When someone rolls over a hot spot, I'd like a box of data (preferably one that has html elements) to pop up and stay up until the user moves the mouse away. If that is not possible to have it popup over the image, then I would like the data to appear in another part of the page.

    Is this possible without Flash? If so, what is the effect called so I can go find the code and try and figure it out myself.

    I, am obviously not a web designer.

    This will popup anything you want but you will not be able to hover over the popup its self (like if you want to put a link in the popup).

    This example uses text links, but you can use an image map (just Google image map how to).



    Google CSS mouseover balloons or bubble or popup for many more examples.
