Thesaurus Tooltip jQuery Plugin

This toolkit is the simplest way to create own in-text advertising system using IntelliTXT (IntelliImages/IntelliMedia) technology approach.

You can apply the plugin for content areas on your site pages and it will highlight all the terms from the dictionary (by default: sample.csv). When hovering a term, visitors of your site will get definition of the term on a tooltip. Content of the appeared tooltip is being processed as well. So if any terms are encountered , they get definition-tooltips attached. If you switch to DB data-source, you will have visits and click statistics collected.

You can use this plugin to create intelligent advertisement, tooltip to show portal news description, interactive reference book and so on and so forth.
