Sorry, I don't understand what's going on.

I have come up with:

for (i in MyDesc) {
        var MyPointer = document.getElementById(i)
        MyPointer.onmouseover = function () { MyWorld.nodeValue = 
MyDesc[i] + ' world' }

but its not tackling the issue and I don't understand how the example 
below is supposed to work.

I've looked everywhere for enlightenment and found an excellent resource 
at simon.incutio.com but this is still a complete mystery to me.
