Hi gents,

This is just one of a million ideas I'm sure you all have heard before, but I
figured I'd throw it out there and see if possibly there is something I could
do to help. Have you all considered modifying the engine of wikipedia to
allow the viewing of alt. text popups (yellow box with text from the article
of the word the cursor is hovering over) during the reading of an article?
Perhaps just the first few lines of the article referenced would be an
excellent way to expedite researching. Just an idea. Let me know if I can
help with this if you undertake the project. Thanks all for your work--I try
to edit whenever I get the chance, though usually someone beats me to it!
Open Source rocks my socks off!
