    when i go to a website, usualy IGN, there are always these double underlined links that take you to a sponsered web site. when you hover over them a box appears and give some info about what and were to buy it. are these put in by IGN or is it something IE does on it's own? if it's IE, can you turn it off. i would think it is just done by IGN so they can send you off to buy from

    thanks and sorry if this is a dumb question,

    its the title attribute of the link I think, either that or the name attribute, its one of those

    so its actually part of the HTML/xHTML standard, the rendering of which is just a choice made by the browser which in your case is MSIE
