Stu, Many, MANY thanks for the work you've done and offered to the public. I've used your balloon pop-ups on our personal website ( It took a little tinkering, but with you carving out the path the rest was pretty easy. Again, THANKS!

I'm trying to integrate this idea on my site, but with text links vs. image links, and have been having problems getting it to work. Basically, after taking out the code I think should be taken out, it stops working in IE. Is this even possible? Thanks!

Great work Stu!!! I would like to use this idea on a personal web page but would like to use image maps instead of images. Is that possible?

I am new to balloon pop ups. I would like to implement them over image briefly describing the image (fishing trip). Can you explain how I would use the balloon template to do this? Thanks.

Hi Stu,

Thanks for yet again another great css. I am running into one minor problem. It's actually the same problem that Theresa that posted here was running into. I implemented the css but I'm now being left with a lot of extra "white space" at the bottom of my webpage. If you look at my webpage,, it's actually in my case "black space". ;o) Before I added the code the entire page fit nicely onto the screen with just a top and bottom margin of 5 but, now there's all this empty space. When you have some time, would it be possible for you to take a look at my webpage to see if you can see the problem? Thanks, and keep up the good work Stu.

Thank you for the wonderful information. However, I'm hoping there is a simple and painless way to apply the balloon pop up to a 'text link'. I was able tweak it a bit, but due to [.balloon ul li dl {
} ]
- any text in the 'dl' is hidden by default.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
