Initial Description
This is the javascript code that enables you to create hover effects also in IE6. It's clean, it's light, it's super! :)

Apply that code to your document (eg. in <head></head>) and in css add like this:

ul li:hover,  ul li.shover {  your css styles }

Explain: IE6 will on mouse over element add .shover to that element.

Initial Title
