How can I popup a Wikipedia’s page, Language selection

I have a page with hyperlinks to Wikipedia references,
I’d like these hyperlinks to popup an auto-adjusted balloon with the ‘Language selection’ that is associated to the Wiki’s page the link referances when hovered over.
The user can either pick the link as-is or go to the balloon and chose the language, click, and the page will appear in a new window.

For example: Apple (the fruit)
On the left side in: “In other languages” there is a list to choose from.

The tags Wiki uses are:

<div id="p-lang" class="portlet">
<h5>In other languages</h5>
<div class="pBody">
<ul> <li><a>link</a>>/li
Snip List <li><a>link</a>>/li
<!-- end of the left (by default at least)column -->

How can I pull this language-list into a popup balloon? (CSS or JS is fine)

Hi Stu,

This is a fantastic script and one of my favourite websites, so thank you very much. With the balloon pop-up links, is it possible to have them switch to the left of the object once you go too far right of the screen?

Ohil, this is possible but would require an alternative style for left balloon abd pointer.

I noticed that when the mouse is moved within the pop-up balloon its content flickers. Why does this happen?

Can this be used with the Map Hotspots in Dreamweaver? I'm hoping to use this on this page:

Hi Simone, my email address stu{at} should not be a problem, but you have my permission to use this demo as long as the copyright comment is kept in the stylesheet.

Stu, great stuff! I am building a different type of TAG cloud for open source where it gives more than one choice of where to go from the tag link. This came about as part of a new demonstration project. A mate suggested a 3-D ontology so I could use a tooltip that has links inside. I can implement it fine on my own. I was just wondering if the graphic files were parked anywhere handy? The project is at

Just enter the image path (from the stylesheet) into the address bar, for example:
