jQuery hover event [SOLVED]

jQuery hover event [SOLVED]

Hi there

I'm sorry if this seems like a noobish question, but i really haven't found a reliable way of handling the mouseover and mouseout events.

If i use the hover() function, sometimes the mouseout event is not fired. For example, if I quickly hover over an element and quickly hover out, the out event is not fired. (This may be due to the processor being busy at the point of mouseout, or something on those lines. I'm not sure really.)

I'm trying to create a simple tooltip plugin, and this is quite an issue for me. I don't really want to pollute my code with intervals and timeouts and mouse positions to determine if the mouse is not hovering over a given element.

Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
