Hi,

If I have understood what you are trying to do, I use the following to display the beginning of the description of the link :

<a title="<%Title%> : &#168;<%field_shorten($Description,'150')%>&#168;" href="<%detailed_url%>"><%Title%></a>

with

a global from one of your threads :) to shorten the field :
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...0description;#268920

It's not javascipt but will require far less code. Let me know if you are really stuck on javascript since I also use some code on another site that creates a box type system on mouseover but it's more complicated to get working.

Hope this helps !
