In the recent 3 page, show a ToolTip of the Summary (e.g., "You Know, the alt="" Thing" in the case of this idea) over whatever idea the viewer hovers over. It'll give them that much more info about the idea before they click on it.

       Makes much sense. (+).   

       Mouseover support for text links is not done the same way as with images. Tooltip pop-ups are only supported in IE 4.0+. You would need a CSS-enabled browser and CSS code to make it cross-browser compatible.

       Someone actually suggested this before, a long, long time ago, along with a suitable mechanism (it's not the "alt" keyword, which only works for images - you need to use the "title" keyword in an <a> tag - this still works in MSIE, though I can't test the other browsers here).
