You should test to make sure in the major browsers (and maybe
let the list know your results ;)

- it may be the case that onfocus and onblur will suffice (that is,
accommodate mouse users and keyboard users), otherwise I don't
see any harm in providing both event handlers.

hope that helps..

In the case mentioned above the additional information is not
presented to keyboard only users when tabbing through the links -
perhaps using onfocus and onblur for these disjointed rollovers
might solve that issue.

Just to clarify this, do you mean to say that in addition to
onMouseOver/Out, you suggest I also do onFocus/Blur and that should
satisfy?
