CSS DEMOSInformation balloon pop-ups

Date : 22nd April 2006

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


For Corl DeLuna, thank you.

This one has a little bit extra to my previous demonstration. Links in the pop-ups.

The method is based on my drop-down and flyout menus whereby Internet Explorer can be made to recognise nested links by using tables.

Hover the mouse over any of the web pages to see a pop-up information box with the site name and a snippet of information. Also included are three links from the particular web site.

Non IE browsers are able to use the li:hover styling to show the pop-up balloon but IE is limited to using a:hover. Conditional comments are used to feed the nested links to IE5.5 and IE6.

IE7 beta 2 recognises li:hover so it is excluded from the conditional comments.

This works in IE5.5, IE6, IE7 beta X, Firefox, Opera etc.

IE5.01 will just see the browsers images which can still be clicked to take you to the web site.

I have chosen the above web site for no particular reason except that they have been shown in css galleries.
