I know this has prolly been answered in the past but I am having a hard time finding which key words to accurately search on.

Basically, I have 4 divs with content in them. I have attached a basic onmouseover/onmouseout even to the divs so that it changes background...simple stuff.

Everything is fine in FF but in IE7 I get a flickering when I rollover the text within the div. It looks like IE is thinking I am rolling off the div when I roll onto the text. (which is inside the container div)

How do I get around this? I know it has been addressed in drop down menus in the past with elaborate scripts that will delay the onmouseout event to check to see if you are still within the parent div...I dunno...I guess I am looking for an easier solution.
