    I used firefox to view source and found, for the McNabb headline,
this single line:

<font class="cnewslbl"><b>NFL</b></font><br><a 
href="/nfl/story/9565534" onmouseout="javaScript:tooltipOff()" 
onmouseover="javaScript:tooltipOn('Donovan McNabb does a better job 
avoiding tacklers than lingering questions about Terrell Owens. 
Speaking to reporters after practice Friday, a cordial McNabb called 
Owens\' recently released autobiography a \'children\'s book,\' mocked 
the star receiver for saying he was misquoted in his own book and 
disputed some of the written allegations.')">McNabb fires back at 
T.O.'s book</a> | <a 
class=spacer10> </div>

    The text that appears upon mouseover is called a tool tip
and is in the single quoted string starting ('Donovan... and
ending ...allegations.')
    Note that the call to the tooltipOn() function in the javaScript
class is itself a value of the onmouseover attribute.
    Nice they don't hide the source--great education.
