onmouseover event bubbling

i'm just beginning to understand how this works. from what i understand if i have two nested divs, the mouseover fires on the inner most div first, and then also on its parent and so on.

but suppose i have an absolutely positioned div that doesn't appear to be in its parent. is there a way to a mouseover event on elements this div covers up?

Unfortunately not. The script only knows about actual parent/child relationships, not about the final rendering.
