I have a floor plan (see floor plan below) and I'd like to make it so  
that when an office is moused-over, a div shows displaying a pict of  
the office and under that, the person's name and contact information.   
I found something that allows me to do this on a link (see tool tip  
below), but it's not working off of an image.  Do I make my image a  
background image and place divs all over it?  I'd like to try and  
implement an already existing library if possible, if you could  
reference one.  I have jquery already loaded on the page.  Can you  
suggest some pre-existing libraries that I could use?  If not, can you  
suggest an approach?
