Proper approach to rollover identifies

Hello all--

My project requires a fast, client-side rollover that displays information about certain points on the map. My first thought on this was having a custom InfoWindow a la this sample and putting a Dojo StackContainer in it where it shows the relevant information with respect to the point--that way all the content/images is predefined/loaded from the HTML.

However, I'm having trouble thinking about a way to trigger the InfoWindow...How would I tie the InfoWindow open/close events to fire on a mouseover over the points that are on the map?

Or maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way. Has anyone implemented anything similar and have a better way to go about doing this?
