Need CSS Help with a hover element

Hi there,
Need some CSS guru help. If you visit my link:


and hover over the years (top middles, 2008, 2009, 2010, etc) you will notice an orange bar extending from the top to the bottom of the page. I am trying to get the same effect on the left (month and day) but am unable to do so.

The problem I am having is that I cannot get the orange hover bar to extend off the left of the screen for either #dayleft or for #monthleft. It extends all the way to the right margin of the screen but not the left. The problem is the margin-left: 15px; in #monthleft and margin-left: 80px; in #dayleft. But I cannot get rid of these since I require them for the letter spacing.

Any advice?

Try adding the following to the :hover pseudoclasses:


Exchanging XX with the apropriate count (it will actually be a little bit more than 15px for months and 80px for days). Remember that the "left" attribute is to be negative.
