htmlText a:hover event?

Can’t find any info on this anywhere. Posted over at and thought I’d try here to:

I know you can listen for the link event when the user clicks a hyperlink in an html enabled text field but what if I want to have something displayed on mouseOver (a:hover) of the hyperlink? Like a simple tooltip for the link?

I don’t see any info on a “hover” event or anything.

Is my only option to somehow get the bounds of the link in the text field and check for a hitTest or mouseOver or something? Seems like this shouldn’t be this hard…

Any advice is appreciated!
