Use a roll over. You can use links, form-items, etc... to
trigger the roll-over event. This is a system I've used
across a number of apps. Check out a number of properties on
http://www.ellidavis.com for example.

If you use a select menu, for example, you can make the
value of the select the form data that you want to use. It's
quick, easy and compact.

A whisper's breeze sways,
a shout's tempest breaks.
