Great tutorial but i have netscape
not internet explorer
It's great but does not work in Mozilla Firefox which i have.

Digit is right. Internet Exploer should also be able to use :hover on any element.
I put on my page - offline, but no effect at all. :( I used IE 6.0, Dreamweaver
Have a look here for the code for Mozilla: http://www.planetpenguin.de/artikel-46.html
im a firefox user as well and i love it, microsoft is starting to announce IE7.0 in press releases and it looks pretty mad, and it doesnt use activeX for once
Any idea how to customise the scrollbars of a <SELECT> drop down list? The same approach doesnt work for drowdown lists :(
