I have a hover event that highlights some text somewhere else on the page. When I leave the hover target, I don't want the highlighting to change. So I don't want a mouseout event. The problem is, when I hover over the one I want and then try to get to the highlighted items, I inevitably drag across another hover event which fires when I don't want it to.
I tried the hoverIntent plugin but I get an error in Firebug saying hoverIntent is not a function even though it is loaded in the Head section.
Any other ideas? I looked but what I found seemed to just delay the execution of the event which I assume is fine if you want to cancel the hover actions on mouseout.
