I might help test this just for the exercise, but why not use one of the handful of terrific mouseHover functions, like "mouseLine()" or "mouseChunk()"?

Subject: MouseWithin

It would appear that a mouseWithin handler can't be used in a behavior
script?  The mouseWithin message seems to be sent to the button containing
the behavior script, not the control that references the behavior button.

Am I misunderstanding?  If not, any suggestions for how to overcome this?
 I am using the mouseWithin message to figure out which line/column of a
table control the mouse is over so I can build an appropriate tooltip.
