Lingoes mouseover not working
Hi all. I just noticed that my lingoes mouse-over translation tool has stopped working on CPOD. Other websites are fine. I've updated my installed lingoes to the IE9-compatible version. For some reason, it's just not working on CPOD. Anyone else having problems with this? Is it due to a change at CPOD's end? Or more likely a problem with my laptop?
thanks for any help

I don't use lingoes for Chinese as I use mandarin popup for that. But I do use lingoes for the other Praxis Pods. So I just tried it on CPod here to check it out for you. Wasn't sure if I'd ever downloaded a Chinese dictionary for the lingoes, but , checking it out, it does give example sentences using Jukuu. I'm using firefox though.

We haven't changed anything here that would have such a result. Any characters that appear as text should be readable by any pop-up dictionary.
This is more likely a Lingoes compatability issue. I recommend you check it out with them.
thanks JC. Interestingly, all still works fine with my work laptop. I suspect it's an issue with my home laptop, where I recently upgraded to the latest version of IE. Will look at it again later.
By the way, Chris, please let us know if you find anything. There is a lot of third-party software for learning Chinese, and our users have tried them all. Ideally, we'd be able to ensure they all work with our site.
