mouse hover

A mouse hover, also called just hover, triggers an event when a user places a mouse over a designated area, such as a hyperlink on a Web page. The action of moving the mouse over the item causes events such as pop-up windows or description boxes. Hovers can be coded into Web pages using DHTML, JavaScript and other means. Usually, if the function uses JavaScript it is called a mouseover.
