Blog-cruisin' at work, trying to make mine more visually appealing. I love Bellwether's blogroll on 4haelz, I was hoping someone (if not Bell herself) had some insight on how to reconstruct it using my own blogroll.

Is it simply taking 50x50 pics to represent each site and adding hyperlink functionality on click? How do I put a rollover tooltip onto each for when the user hovers over the picture with his/her mouse?

Anything I'd need to know about creating something like this that you'd tell to an HTML novice?

I'm not sure which widget Bell did her blogroll in, but if it's in pure HTML, I can answer your second question.

The tooltips of a link is generated by the alt parameter of an image tag. The parameter was originally designed for browsers that may sometimes not allow some images to load, thus a descriptive text of the image may be needed.
Code:
<img alt="" src="" />

Thanks Loronar. I'll definitely be putting that bit of code to use if I try to HTML it myself.
