Notice how when you pass your mouse over it in the bottom left (Netscape and Internet Explorer) of your browser window the following message appears "go back to menu" and it disappears when your mouse goes off it
Create a link as normal but select extra HTML.. or Advanced Edit
With older versions of composer just cut and paste the following text into the box that appears
onMouseOver="window.status='go back to menu'; return true" onMouseOut="window.status=' '; return true"
With Netscape 6.x composer, again create the link as before.
Click on advanced edit on the linking menu
You'll need to select the appropriate Attribute(Y) from the pull down list and enter it's value
window.status='go back to menu';return true
window.status=' ';return true
You may need to go to the edit HTML option and manually add in all of these lines (for some reason there is atendancy to skip out the return true)
The two event handlers are onMouseOver & onMouseOut.
The onMouseOut attribute (not unsurprisingly) triggers when you move the mouse off the link. It effectively blanks out the last status message (try the code without the 4th and 5th lines (i.e. the onMouseOut attribute - the message often won't disappear and will only be temporarily replaced by other link status info)
Another key event handler is onClick. No prizes for guessing how it works. It is triggered by clicking on something
