<H4>Interactive elements and icons</H4>
<P>
The balloon messages and icons follow the movement of the mouse pointer and show the exact reaching time for the indicated element.
When the mouse pointer is placed over an accessible tag, the balloon message also indicates the tag name.
</P>
<P>
The balloon icon indicates acceptability of the reaching time.
</P>
<UL class="icons">
<LI><IMG src="images/I_FaceSmile.gif" alt="Smiling face.">: The reaching time for the element is shorter than or equal to 30 seconds.
<LI><IMG src="images/I_FaceUsual.gif" alt="Expressionless face.">: The reaching time for the element is longer than 30 seconds, but shorter than or equal to 90 seconds (the default maximum acceptable reaching time).
