I have an xslt list view webpart where I am displaying all the documents in a list. I want to implement on functionality where if user hover on a document link then I should display a small popup with top 50 characters from the document. Is it possible in SharePoint 2010. If yes, then how can I go for it?

It's like reading a document and fetching first 50 characters from there and displaying them in a popup. I can use jQuery for the same.

Thanks in advance.

There is a codeplex project titled Thumbnail Extender for SharePoint - the url is http://thumbextsp.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Home%20English.

It uses Office Web Apps to achieve the thumbnail preview. It doesn't support all document types but it works and is free.
