MS Word

Is it possible to have expanding definitions in Word. What I mean is usually seen on web based pages were a certain word will be highlighted in the text. If you need an explanation of the term you click on it and it appears there on the page without opening a separate window.
What I am trying to achieve is a to make the document more readable by eliminating explanations that most will understand but need to be there for those that don't.
Any suggestions welcome.

Regards MnD

Hi, If you are using Word 97 or later, go to the Insert menu and select Insert comment, and you can write a description of the word(s) you have highlighted. When the cursor is placed over the word the comment pops up. Hope this is what you had in mind
Cheers
