Link in div breaking onmouseleave

P: 1

I have a div which scrolls out onmouseover and in onmouseleave. Within the div, there's another div containing the text. Within the text there's a link, which when rolled over triggers the onmouseleave event. I thought onmouseleave was only supposed to fire when the mouse moves outside the boundaries of the element?

Here's a pared-down version of the code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <div id="anticipazioni" style="top:260px; position:absolute" onmouseover="moveDiv(this);" onmouseleave="closeAllDivs();">
  2.             <img src="gfx/text/anticipazioni_it.gif" name="anticip" width="285" height="21" border="0" id="anticip"/><br>
  3.             <div style="background-color:#BEBEBE; width:auto; padding-left:36px; padding-top:10px; height:86px;">
  4.                 blah blah blah<br><br>
  5.                 <span class="blackText"><a href="">VAI AL CAPITOLO</a></span><br>
  6.             </div>
  7.         </div>
Any ideas? Suggestions?

This might have to do with the fact that onmouseover moves the div. Btw, onmouseleave is an IE-only event.
