[pstricks] mouseover/tooltip in a plot

Hi Sebastian,

attached is a simple example with a _Mouseover Event_, activating an 
Optional Content Group (OCG or layer).
The coordinates of a point are shown when mousing over. This is not a 
Tooltip -- this is even a more sophisticated workaround of a tooltip, 
where you can let appear some LaTeX code within this OCG.

However there is *aeb_pro* needed and the workflow is:

LaTeX --> dvips --> DISTILLER --> Acrobat Pro 7++

to generate the attached PDF.

Adobe Reader 7++ is necessary to view it, cause a PDF viewer is needed, 
that can handle the implemented JavaScript.

Hope this helps.

The TeX sourcefile is attached to the PDF.
