|Mouse Over Detection|
How do detect if a mouse is over a UL?

This may exist somewhere but I not sure what I am searching for being new to JS so I apologise if it is a widely known thing.
I need to know whether a mouse is over an unordered list (<ul>) or not. I am making a simple drop down menu from scratch and I don't really want to use 3rd party code due to licensing, etc.
When you roll over a button, the UL list below it is revealed, and I need to know if thr mouse then goes over it or not.

<ul onmouseover="alert('Mouse is over!')">
to be more precise, you may define width and height too may be.

Can you add an onmouseover event to a UL or link by function?
For exmaple, I have <body onload="init()">
Can this init() function place the onmouseover events onto a normal A tag link and a UL?

You can add an event listener to any element on a page. Do a search for addEventListener.
