Best Practices for Mouseover Layers

Hello IXDA-ers. Long time lurker. First time poster.

I am looking for best practices on incorporating a mouseover layer onto a
web page.

Here is a description of my interaction:

There is a link on the page. On rollover, the user gets a layer that gives
the user more information about the item. When the user moves the mouse off
of the link, the layer goes away. On click, the user goes to the detail page
of the object.

We are using a third party site to create our layers.

Ballot design research

FiveThirtyEight posed a ballot design question that I think ought to
be easily answerable with research and I'm also vaguely remembering
that someone did this kind of research. Can anyone help?

http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2008/11/ballot-design-quiz.html#comments
- three versions of a ballot are shown and the research question is
which version would produce an undervote.

There's a lot of discussion underneath the entry but it mostly seems
to be guesswork. Anyone got research?

What to use for rapidly generating HTML prototypes from concept model diagrams to test interactive search.

Anyone know of a tool that can generate static, linked html pages from
a concept model diagram? The tool needs to be a concept model diagram
creation tool that generates individual html pages that are linked
together. The goal being that if you were to reorganize the concept
model diagram, the tool can regenerate html pages with the new links.
This is needed for rapidly creating HTML prototypes in order to test
interactive search.

Thanks.

Pacemaker DJ product

Although I¹m working in IA and UxD by day, I¹m also a DJ. We¹re a discerning
bunch when it comes to product usability. I love this new product, Pacemaker
DJ. It¹s clear there were a host usability issues that needed to be worked
out with this device.

Here¹s a video that takes a look at the product¹s functions. You can get a
pretty good idea visually of interaction with the unit.
